College of Engineering's Electrified Transportation Summer Camp

High school students who participated in the College of Engineering's recent Electrified Transportation Summer Camp put an electric car they built through its paces. Sponsored by a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy, the program included lectures from U-M faculty about electrified and hybrid vehicles, batteries, electric motors, and sustainable transportation, hands-on experience in several U-M labs, and related field trips.
