Carolyn speaks at Lincoln High School EV Club

Many thanks to the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association for their ongoing mentorship at Lincoln High School this past year.  Five seniors have refurbished three electric scooters during after-school hours with help from Mark Albers, Secretary of the SFEVA, and other members; the program is lead by Lincoln photography teacher Jack Alter.  I was asked to present on EV battery technology and my experience with both lead acid and nickel metal hydride chemistries in EV applications.  Topics also included hybrid and plug-in hybrid architecture to expand students’ thinking on how to design different EV platforms. 

The afternoon ended with a test drive of their finished Vego scooters (they work great!) and a demo of LG’s plug-in Prius.
