Student teams will compete to rotate tires in a specific order with each student taking a tire off and remounting the tire in a different position on the vehicle. Using a scan tool, students will retrieve an engine code from a vehicle and diagnose the code. Student will receive a tour of an Electric Vehicle build and take a ride in the high torque, tire spinning vehicle as it rolls around the track.
Students will have fun collaborating as they perform critical thinking to solve problems using diagnostic techniques. Students will become familiar with tools and equipment that are used in the automotive industry, and will experience fun, hands-on activities.
