In the Region 14 ATC Automotive Service Technology program that is held at Mascenic High School, students learn to diagnose, adjust, and repair the various systems of an automobile.
As the automotive teacher Russell Wilson of Mascenic High School shared, “The Region 14 ATC program is providing students with career-driven curriculum to meet the needs of the automotive industries’ ever-changing demands.”
“In addition to lessons learned about modern automotive technology, we are pleased to announce that an electric vehicle and some classics have been added to the shop. The electric vehicle is designed to be assembled through several easy-to-grasp modules and provide students with the principles necessary to enter into our new clean energy future.”
Students develop their skills by also working on older donated vehicles. “Our classics include a 1941 Dodge Power Wagon military truck and a 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air,” Wilson continued. “These vehicles give students a glimpse into the history of the automotive industry. The 1958 Chevrolet Bel Air seen in the photographs is getting an engine swap with a period-correct stock replacement. Students are making amazing progress and are learning what it takes to do the job the correct way.”
