As electric vehicles become more prevalent, so will the need to repair them. The technology is so advanced that it could be a challenge to those who have been repairing internal combustion engines for so long. The state of New Hampshire has recognized that, and has successfully applied for and received grants to educate high school and college students on electric vehicles by furnishing them with vehicle assembly kits they can work with and experiment on. The Department of Education’s bureau of career and technical education is handling the grants, working with California-based The Switch Lab. Roger Wood in his latest podcast speaks with Eric Frauwirth. He is the administrator of the Bureau of Career Development at the New Hampshire DOE.
