Transportation of the Future

This week’s workshop was full of fun activities plus a sweet mini-field trip! The workshop started off with discussions between mentor-mentee pairs that introduced the topic of transportation and allowed mentees to look at the types of transportation and how they rank in terms of carbon emissions. After ranking the forms of transportation (and determining that biking is one of the most efficient and awesome), Ayme led part of the workshop and introduced us to her bike and took us to the bike shop. We returned to the MET and did rotating groups with three stations explaining alternative types of energy for cars (biofuels, electric, hydrogen). We did another small group activity and showed the mentees a video of an awesome future form of transportation—the Hyperloop! Each group then planned their own new transportation vehicle/system!
