Career-connected learning (aka work-based learning) is at the heart of the Switch EV Lab Program. The Switch vehicle is designed to provide a hands-on experience that teaches students engineering, electronics, automotive and the importance of sustainable energy.
Ongoing Teacher Training
Teachers in the Switch EV Lab program are provided several paid opportunities for professional development, including an intensive week-long training at Switch Vehicles Inc., regular Community of Practice gatherings, one-on-one coaching from a SCOE Work-Based Learning Coach, and pre-designed project templates to implement hands-on student projects to enhance their classes.
Switch EV Rally
The Switch EV Rally is an annual event culminating a year of student creativity and hard work on the Switch EV. The event is designed to inspire an innovative mindset in students and teachers, and provide an opportunity for students to showcase their vehicles. Students will demonstrate what they have learned throughout the year through presentations and challenges, explore the work of other Switch students and engage in fun, hands-on activities.
