Local Recipients

Nick Lacoppola

This isn't how shop class used to be. Students in Nick Lacoppola's automotive technology class at Marian Academy in Rexdale, Ontario, have been converting two gas-powered cars to electrical power. The students are designing and building their own parts. Mr. Lacoppola has spent hours talking to engineers and industry leaders getting advice and support. The school sent a car to the 1995 APS-500 electric car race, and the students were featured in a video on how to build an electric car.
