The fifth-graders arrived on a bus powered by compressed natural gas and walked across an entry mat that triggered a message in twinkling, fiber-optic letters: "Welcome to the future."

It was a fitting start for a field trip to the ECO-Center, where middle school students learn about the evolution during their lifetimes from fossil fuels like gasoline to alternatives fuels.

Last week, 25 students from Marvin Elementary in the San Diego community of Allied Gardens made the trek to the ECO-Center, which shares a building with Pearson Ford at El Cajon Boulevard and 40th Street.
