GM Invites Students To An 'Electric' Education 11-09-2010

General Motors is inviting middle school students in grades 5-8 from around the country to become educated on the prospects of the future of transportation in an interactive presentation featuring the Chevrolet Volt.
Chevrolet's presentation, "The Power of the Plug: How Electricity Will Change Our World Again" -- covers the properties of electricity, how it is generated and how it can change personal transportation.
It is scheduled to stream over the Internet from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday.
Schools were allowed to register before hand to participate online by submitting questions live.
GM said classrooms that did not pre-register still may access streaming video at 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 in classrooms today will be designing and engineering the cars of tomorrow," said Tony Posawatz, Chevrolet Volt vehicle line director. "We're reinvesting in our students of tomorrow today with an educational curriculum focused on the next generation of automotive technology.”
Chevrolet's presentation links to the Michigan standard for introducing chemistry and electricity concepts in the classroom and also will be recorded for teachers who wish to share it with their students at a later date.
Teachers can access an educational digital magazine at chevroletvoltage.com.
The Volt's manufacturer's suggested retail price is $41,000
