Michael Mack, founder of Electric Auto Shop, earned a Congressional Award from Congresswoman Linda T. Sanchez for “dedication and service to the 2013 engineering project at La Mirada High School.”
The Whittier Daily Newspaper covered Electric Auto Shop’s delivery of the Chassislab Electric Kit Car that will be used by the engineer classes. La Mirada received a grant towards to purchase of the kit and Mack stepped forward to help donate the textbooks and videos that guides students in assembly of the car.
Michael Mack is a 20-year veteran of the electric vehicle market. He founded Electric Auto Shop about five years ago to apply his experience in electric vehicles and Internet start ups to helping students build more alternative fueled vehicles.
Mack also received a certificate of recognition from La Mirada High School and long-time teacher Norma Williamson, who is the director of the engineer program.
La Mirada has built several electric vehicles in the past, including electric bicycles, scooters, golf carts and solar boats. But this is the schools first freeway capable electric car.
