Today I had the opportunity to drive the electric car built by our students. It was a bit cramped but an enjoyable ride. Folks, this vehicle can go up to 70 miles and hour! I wanted to test it on I-75 but did not want to get pulled over for driving a race car on the highway.
This vehicle is testament to the quality of our auto tech program and the potential that our students have. You will have a chance to see more of this vehicle (and maybe drive it — if you dare) on Monday at the grand opening of our new Tech Center. This is the kind of work, and more, that we will be doing in this new building as we continue to enrich lives in Monroe county and beyond.
