17 Nov Euskelec. Aragon in the IV Basque electric vehicle championship
Aragon participates in the IV Electric Vehicle Championship (Euskelec) organized by TKNIKA And Alterity. This is the first edition of this championship that extends beyond the Basque Country and, for this occasion, the Vocational Training of Aragon is represented by the Department of Transport and Vehicle Maintenance of the Miralbueno High School.
In competition is a perfect example of the learning model based on challenges, where students from Vocational Training centres design and build an electric vehicle to evaluate its performance in different dynamic tests and with the ultimate aim of empowering future technicians in electric mobility and make them grow in transversal skills.
On December 2, it will be held at TKNIKA (in online mode) an informative and formative day about the championship and the electric vehicle with a very interesting program of lectures by experts from the world of motor racing and the electric vehicle:
