Optimizing Education


Adherence to Common-Core-Standards is essential in developing knowledge and skills required for college and work applications. Electric Auto Shop is more than a simple assembly course.  While we are committed to bringing alternate fuel education to students and schools, we understand that this education must effectively match important STEM standards and lead directly to preparedness for college and/or career readiness. The material in our coursework is clear, project-based, consistent and relevant to these Common-Core-Standards goals.

Our coursework incorporates these important points:

We believe our coursework accomplishes the important task of meeting STEM requirements while also inspiring students to learn more. Schools using our courses have entered competitions that required extra effort such as after school and weekend work on their assembly projects. The enthusiasm and teamwork generated by these course activities contributes greatly toward college and career readiness.
