UVic Teaches Local Cubs How to Build Cars from Recycled Material

In late March, the University of Victoria EcoCAR team welcomed local Cub Scouts to their garage to talk about the EcoCAR competition, advanced vehicle technologies, and to show off their EcoCAR.

During the day, the UVic outreach team divided the Cubs into three groups and assigned a member of the engineering team to lead each group. The program included a presentation on current environmental issues, alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies. The UVic team also taught the Cubs how to build pop can cars from recycled materials.

At the end of the visit, the Cubs had the opportunity to race their pop can cars – take a look for yourself!
