Students in Kansas City, Missouri are fueling a car with Facebook!

A 'like' or a Tweet sends a signal into a little box in the car.

That signal lets the car know it has social fuel and can start running.

If the project doesn't have enough social media buzz the power is cut to the electric engine.

The students and their mentors are getting ready to drive the social media car from Kansas City to Washington, D.C. to lobby lawmakers for hands-on education.

They will likely take Instagram shots along the way - because those photos also fuel the car.
