University of Victoria Hosts Youth at the Faculty of Engineering High School Tour Event

A great turnout of more than 240 students participated at the University of Victoria Faculty of Engineering high school tour event earlier this month. Students from the Greater Victoria region were able to ask questions and learn about the design of the UVic EcoCAR. Team members Cameron Dallas, Owen Marshall, and a new volunteer, Charles Jumbo, discussed their role with EcoCAR 2, as well as exciting features of their design.

The team spoke to Isabella Thorsteinsdottir from Dover Bay Secondary School, who explained why she is interested in volunteering her time with EcoCAR 2.

“You have to get together and share different perspectives with other engineering students,” she said. She later went on to explain why she wants to work on hybrid vehicles: “to create something new and better than what’s out there!”

Students were directed to the University of Victoria EcoCAR 2 Facebook page and Twitter account to keep up with upcoming EcoCAR 2 events. Hopefully, the team will see some of these bright minds on campus in the near future!
