EcoCAR 2 is about shaping the future of the automotive industry, and yesterday students demonstrated two of the most important ways they’re reaching that goal: collaboration and education.
Communications and business managers from the teams visited a local middle school, and worked together to present as a group to the 4th, 5th and 6th grade classes. The middle school students started the day talking with team members around the EcoCAR 2 vehicle. Then they headed back into the classroom to learn about alternative fuels, vehicle design and tips they can incorporate into their own daily activities to have a lesser impact on the environment. After the presentation, EcoCAR 2 team members led them in fun activities such as quizzes and vehicle drawing designs to get them excited about applying what they learned. Check out the video below to see some of the excitement!
