One of the things we think a lot about here at foundry10 is how to expand the way people think about learning. In automotive technology education, we brainstormed ways to expose interested automotive students to a wider array of careers involving cars so they could learn more about automotive as an industry. What we came up with, in conjunction with our partners at ProFormance Racing and Team Seattle, was taking interested students to California, to an IMSA race at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and then spending time at one of the premier automotive restoration shops, Canepa. The goal was to get the students to think about the automotive industry in a broader way and to have them learn about the career pathways of professionals.
