CARSTAR Introduces Collision Repair to Students
March 6, 2019—CARSTAR introduced the collision repair industry to a group of the San Francisco 49ers Foundation's STEM Leadership Institute.
The Institute has a six-year curriculum that works to provide students with high academic potential for careers in STEM through more than 300 extra academic hours per school year.
Presenting to over 120 students, the CARSTAR team highlighted how the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) are pervasive in the collision repair industry. They focused on how the technology in vehicles like scanning and 3D measuring have made it possible for technicians to perform repairs on the vehicle that are as advanced as the vehicle itself.
Participating students learned about the latest in vehicle manufacturing as Toyota presented their hydrogen-fueled vehicle. CARSTAR demonstrated the technologies needed to perform repairs on a vehicle like this as well as the opportunities available in the collision repair industry as a whole.
