Unlike previous years, Autos and Car Care students will be able to work on other students’ car’s this year. Because of the success in allowing students to work on the faculty’s cars in the previous years, beginning this semester, students will now be allowed to work on other students’ cars.
According to Mr. Frank Holthouse, the Director of Careers and former chairperson for Industrial Technology, the purpose of this new addition is to allow students to have the “opportunity to work hands-on with a variety of vehicles” to develop and gather a greater amount of experience with cars. Patrick Connolly, Senior, has taken both Car Care and Autos class and thinks that the opportunity to work on other students’ cars is “cool because it’s giving students a new type of learning and provides hands-on training” and adds that because there are “a lot of things that could go wrong in a car, this new addition allows students to have a variety of experience.”
While services include basic car repairs such as oil changes to other complicated issues, Mr. Potvin, the Autos teacher, adds that there will be “no charge for labor, students wanting to bring in their cars may bring in some materials to be used for their cars.”
According to Connolly, everyone should take the Autos class “because it allows you to have a better understanding for your car.”
Potvin added, “There are no prerequisites needed to take the class and anyone with or without experience is welcome to take the course.” So get in the zone at #LeydenZone!
