Automotive Repair Skills Explored and Developed

Help me give my students the tools to work and learn new skills for automotive.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are creative and interested in an automotive trade. They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to class each day ready to try new things and to learn new skills. They are willing to take on tasks and work through adversity to complete new tasks or learn how to be more efficient on tasks they have worked on in previous lessons. Truly, they are my inspiration!

My Project

These tools will be used to demonstrate and teach how to diagnosis and repair automobiles to help students explore a career path. The selected tools will be used to teach fuel systems, cooling systems, brake systems, and other automotive related repairs. These tools are invaluable to my students who learn how they are used in automotive or maintenance careers.

Without these tools it would be more difficult to allow my students to receive hands-on experiences working with these particular tools and develop the needed skills in the automotive shop.

All of the chosen tools will be new to our automotive program and my students will gain new skills. With the addition of these tools my students will have more practice and productivity to accomplish their tasks.
