Students turn gas guzzling corvette into electric vehicle
May 24th  Dick Berry, WTOL

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Thursday was graduation day at the Toledo Technology
Academy. There’s a project there that’s been seven years in the making and
it’s still not finished yet.

The story starts with the donation of a 1975 Corvette to the Academy. The
owner wanted to dump his gas guzzling creampuff after it was involved in an
accident.

He proposed members of the academy’s alternative energy team turn it into an
electric vehicle.

They tore it apart and installed an electric motor.

This week the ‘Vette" hit the road for the first time. It’s a lesson in
project based learning.

“I want them to learn how to tackle a problem and solve it as each new part
of it comes up. There’s new problems and things to figure out. They have to
come up with the answer on how to do it,” according to instructor Ted
Richardson.

Coming up next for year eight: Students will continue working on the
electric system.

So what’s taking so long?

“Some of its classroom and some of it outside. The electric system has been
more in class stuff” adds Richardson.

would be running. Today was the day.
