PG&E Grant for High School Electric Auto Shop

High School students from Stockton enjoyed a week of special electric car assembly training in Sebastopol this March as part of a grant program from PG&E to help young people find careers in green energy.

The overall idea of the pilot program is to provide a practical, hands-on project for high school students to stimulate their interest in math and science-based careers. The $20,000 grant from PG&E (Pacific Gas and Electric Company) was used in the development of an advanced curriculum for green energy technologies along with an internship for previously graduated students. It includes an electric vehicle kit along with all the coursework and videos for a 16-week course in the classroom and auto shop. Read more of this post
