Here's a pitch from my bud Charlie Kondek over at MS&L. He's given me great stuff to write about over the years and here's something else. In his words:
Chevrolet’s is presenting an educational special about electricy titled "The Power of the Plug: How Electricity Will Change Our World Again". The web cast covers the properties of electricity, how it is generated and how it can change personal transportation. It is scheduled from 1 to 2 p.m. EST on Nov. 9.
Schools can register now to participate online and watch the presentation live via a video web cast at "The Power of the Plug" Registration. Registration must be completed by 5 p.m. EDT Nov. 5. Teachers who register will receive instructions on how to join the webcast and submit questions live, as well as a lesson plan developed by the General Motors education team. Classrooms that do not pre-register still may access streaming video at http://chevroletvoltage.com or on the Chevrolet Volt Facebook page.
The presentation will take place at GM’s Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant, the home of the Chevrolet Volt. Students from Detroit and Hamtramck area schools are scheduled to visit the facility and take part in an interactive discussion with members of the Volt team. It will be followed with a live question-and-answer session, where the Volt team will interact with the online participants and students in the live audience.
GM as you know believes that the success of its business depends on its ability to develop advanced technologies and solutions that help make its vehicles more sustainable. Quote from the GM Education About page says it all:
"We’ll continue to need strong engineering talent to do this so we encourage young people to take an interest in science, math and technology. We promote this through the creation of classroom curricula, hands-on experimental and experiential activities, mentoring programs, and the interactive activities and information provided on this web site."
