California High School Prepares Students for the Future of Auto Mechanics

A Bay Area high school in San Francisco is taking steps to ensure that there will be enough certified auto technicians and mechanics to keep up with the rising demand for electric vehicles (EVs). At George Washington High School, students like Evelyn Monjaras are living their dreams of becoming auto mechanics.

Monjaras, a senior at Washington, has always had a passion for cars. She is fortunate to attend the only public high school in the city that offers an auto shop program. While she enjoys working with gas-powered engines, she has also learned the ins and outs of electric motors through hands-on experience with a donated Tesla engine.
