The sounds get louder as you approach the room where Leigh Hartert oversees the Supermileage Challenge team at Eden Prairie High School.
Metal tools clanking. Power tools humming. Classmates chattering back and forth.
The smells that fill the air become stronger too. A lovely aroma of paint mixed with motor fuel that anyone who enjoys working on engines and cars can appreciate.
When you walk into the room, the sights match the sounds and smells.
