Photos and Story by

A few high school automotive instructors check out an exploded air bag during a demonstration at the Sylvania Campus auto shop. On July 10, Scott Morgan, program director of General Motors Automotive Service Educational Program (ASEP), and Automotive Service Technology instructor Russ Jones tested air bags as part of PCC Automotive Service instructors teaching classes during the week to 30 high school and community college automotive instructors from around the state.

This workshop is supported by General Motors and featured work with alternative fuels and hybrid cars. Jeff Triplett, division dean of Math and Industrial Technology, said, “it’s a nice good will gesture to other educators throughout the state, giving them take home knowledge that will help their programs.”
