Abstract

The paper describes a range of educational activities that are being developed to provide opportunities for K-12 students to learn about vehicle electrification. Whilst the focus is primarily on technology, students are also encouraged to consider environmental and societal impacts. Activities include development of school-based learning materials, summer camps, and a toolkit that brings together simulation and physical models, allowing children to play with electric vehicles. This K-12 outreach is part of a larger project, funded by the Department of Energy, to develop a comprehensive educational program in vehicle electrification.
