GM Launches STEM Summer School Series on YouTube

Electrifying Engineering offers hands-on educational activities, introduces students to electric vehicle technology

Schools may be winding down the remote-learning programs put into place during the COVID-19 pandemic, but parents, teachers and students everywhere are seeking new ways to keep minds active and inspired outside the classroom during the summer months. General Motors is lending support by releasing Electrifying Engineering, a free educational video series designed to foster ingenuity through hands-on activities, while educating kids about electric vehicle technology.

Electrifying Engineering episodes will be released on YouTube every Sunday through July 2020. Episodes are hosted by different members of the GM team and touch on a wide range of topics, including electric car charging, electric car motors, autonomous vehicle sensors and more. Episodes will feature an interactive engineering project designed for viewers to conduct in the comfort of their own homes, with everyday household items.

When the project is complete, viewers are encouraged to share a picture on social media using the hashtag #ElectrifyingEngineering.
