There has been
much research and development work on hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles
(FCEVs), but the lack of a hydrogen fueling infrastructure has dramatically
slowed their introduction into the marketplace. However, FCEVs are now being
sold in California, and automotive technician training for FCEVs is needed. This
webinar will explain the operational characteristics of proton-exchange membrane
fuel cells, compare them to other energy storage systems, and outline the start
of new fuel-cell educational programs.This
informative webinar will be held on August 23 from 1:00 - 2:30 PM EDT.
Save the date for Auto STEAM Days, Oct. 19-20, 2016.Learn about careers in automotive design, robotics, manufacturing, and the technology that makes it happen. Auto STEAM Days will feature two sectors:The Automotive Design and Engineering sector will feature modules by General Motors on clay and digital modeling, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles on sketching, and Ford Motor Company on production design. There will also be a car show that let's students sit behind the wheel and talk to real automobile designers and engineers.The Manufacturing and Technology sector will feature modules similar to past
.Registration will open in September.
