Tuskegee University is gearing up for an event showcasing electric vehicles, toys and renewable energy for local students and teachers.
University officials say hundreds of children and educators are expected on campus Thursday for Tuskegee University Electric Vehicle Transportation Day.
School officials say the event will also feature guest lectures from Alabama Power Co., the University of Central Florida and the Florida Solar Energy Center.
Funeral services are being planned at Tuskegee University for retired Lt. Col. Herbert E. Carter, one of the original Tuskegee Airmen.
Carter was among the first troops to report to Tuskegee during World War II as the Pentagon began training the nation's first black military pilots.
The school says a funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at the campus chapel for Carter, who died Nov. 8 at the age of 95.
Carter served in the Air Force and its Army predecessor for 25 years before retiring. He also taught at Tuskegee.
