A New Opportunity
An exciting new opportunity presented itself to us yesterday in the form of a new partnership with Square One Education Network. Karl Klimek visited our facility to invite us to join him at next year's Innovative Vehicle Design event at Michigan International Speedway. Fellow instructor Jerry Beatty, myself and students of the 2012 NMC Hybrid Electric Vehicle class will be traveling to Brooklyn, Michigan with our hybrid trainer vehicle (AKA The AntiPrius) to attend the event. Square One provides grant funding for schools in an effort to provide science, technology, engineering and mathematics opportunities for students, encouraging them to pursue careers in technology oriented fields. You can find more information and video of previous IVD events at squareonenetwork.org. The highlight of our visit will be driving the hybrid trainer project around the MIS track. Can't wait!
