California State University, Los Angeles students understand the importance of the development of green technology. Living in Los Angeles, California we have first hand experience with air pollutants and have decided that we would like to be a part of making California a “Green” state as well as the rest of the country. We are very grateful to have participated in the EcoCAR 2 competition where over 150 students were able to participate and gain valuable experience outside the classroom, while working on the 2013 Chevy Malibu to convert it to a plug-in hybrid vehicle.
We would like to thank General Motors, The Department of Energy and Argonne National Laboratory for granting us the opportunity to participate in EcoCAR 3. Cal State Los Angeles continues to be involved with the Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition (AVTC) series because it prepares students for a hands-on education in the automotive industry and exposes them to environmentally friendly alternatives as well as giving them the opportunity to meet the demands for tomorrow’s diverse and innovative world.
