Revisting Last Summer’s Electrifying Engineering, Timeless Education

David Acosta, Creative Designer at General Motors

As summer approaches, many schools are winding down the school year and remote-learning programs that were set in motion by the Coronavirus pandemic. Parents, teachers and students everywhere are seeking educational content and new ways to keep kids’ minds active and inspired outside the classroom. General Motors is lending support by releasing “Electrifying Engineering,” a free video series designed to foster ingenuity through hands-on activities, while educating kids about electric vehicle technology.

Electrifying Engineering episodes will be released every Sunday through July 2020. Each episode is hosted by a member of the GM team. The series touches on a wide range of topics, including electric car charging, electric car motors, autonomous vehicle sensors and more. Episodes will feature an interactive engineering project designed for viewers to conduct in the comfort of their own homes, with everyday household items.

The Electrifying Engineering playlist can be found at YouTube.com/GeneralMotors. Videos are available with captions in both English and Spanish.

When the project is complete, viewers are encouraged to share a picture on social media using the hashtag #ElectrifyingEngineering.
