The EcoCAR 3 workshop will be held in conjunction with the Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Technology Expo and The Battery Show. When the EcoCAR 3 students are not in training sessions for the competition, they have the ability to network with Expo exhibitors and sponsors. In addition, the EcoCAR 3 Chevrolet Camaro as well as Wayne State’s EcoCAR 2 vehicle will be on display at the Expo. If you are attending, stop by Booth E361 to talk to students and organizers about the program.
