C2EC2T

Commuter Conversion Electric Car Class for Teachers and EV Enthusiasts

4th Annual Workshop

San Diego City High School

Coordinators: Abrán Quevedo (Mr. Q) and

Jon Karanopoulos

July 28th to August 8th, 2008

the project
The Project

The C2EC2T workshop is a project-based instructional offering for teachers and electric vehicle enthusiasts. Workshop participants will learn how to convert a small ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) car into a NICE (No Internal Combustion Engine) car powered by batteries. A collaborative team approach will be used to brainstorm, plan, design, and convert the project car within the ten-day period.

daily routine
DAILY ROUTINE

PROPOSED SCHEDULE

  • Workshop will be open from 7:30 AM to 8:00 AM for coffee and pastries. Class will start promptly at 8:00 AM each morning in the classroom.
  • Mr. Q and Mr. Karanopoulos will introduce the guest speaker for the day and the EV topic area to be covered. The presentation will take one hour and the guest presenter will stay through the lunch period so that individual participants may have an opportunity to ask questions.
  • Immediately following the guest presentation, Mr. Q and Mr. Karanopoulos will conduct a daily PRE-BRIEFING of activities to be undertaken, including tools needed, work station location, and group assignments. Participants will then go to their designated team area to start the day’s work
