From a veritable smorgasbord of leading electric car-makers–Chevrolet, Nissan, Ford, Toyota, Tesla, Fiat, Mitsubishi, Via Motors and others–it was the Switch from Electric Auto Shop that landed on the front page of the local paper.
The open-framed electric car draws a crowd wherever it goes as spectators can see how the electric drive train and mechanics of the car work. It was designed to help students learn math and science by building a complete electric car in the classroom through a course called ChassisLab.
ChassisLab is a step by step curriculum for teaching electric vehicle technology. The program is designed for grades 9th and up. It is a 16-week course taught and assembled in the school lab/shop and classroom. Learn more at Electric Auto Shop and read about the Suisun City EV Show in the Daily Republic.
