More about this image
Supported by the National Science Foundation's Advanced Technological Education program, CAAT prepares students for careers in emerging and advanced automotive technologies. CAAT reaches thousands of middle and high school students each year through career exploration labs; in-classroom science, technology, engineering and mathematics labs; and career academies, as well as through outreach programs like the CAAT-managed Automotive Design and Engineering Career Expo. The expo, sponsored and staffed by General Motors, Ford and Chrysler, was attended by more than 1,200 middle and high school students.
