TRAILER — Episode 6: “Driving Progress”

(Note: Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, we will be postponing our originally planned episode on this year’s “Making It Work” award recipients. However, we will continue to bring you new, great stories in the meantime.)

Students rebuild car engine at competition

With more than 100 million passenger vehicles in America today, it pays to be in the automotive business. But with new technology speeding ahead at a breakneck pace, it’s important for technical education programs to keep up.

We’ll take you inside the OKC Auto Show where students show off their skills and network with potential employers and educators. We’ll also take you inside one such program, where electric, hybrid, and natural gas vehicles are part of the curriculum. Auto shops and dealerships have a stake in this too, as they look for new and innovative ways for workforce development.
