Many thanks to the San Francisco Electric Vehicle Association for their ongoing mentorship at Lincoln High School this past year. Five seniors have refurbished three electric scooters during after-school hours with help from Mark Albers, Secretary of the SFEVA, and other members; the program is lead by Lincoln photography teacher Jack Alter. I was asked to present on EV battery technology and my experience with both lead acid and nickel metal hydride chemistries in EV applications. Topics also included hybrid and plug-in hybrid architecture to expand students’ thinking on how to design different EV platforms.
The afternoon ended with a test drive of their finished Vego scooters (they work great!) and a demo of LG’s plug-in Prius.
