Kids in Evansville, Indiana had the opportunity to learn about car maintenance from local technicians, 14 News reports.
The event was part of a series of events at Evansville’s Young and Established community center that aim to teach kids about basic life skills, which has previously covered other topics such as gardening and cooking.
Two technicians from Full Throttle Automotive, a local auto shop, came to teach a group of kids about the importance of taking care of a vehicle. They first held a presentation where they talked about the work they do and their experience of working with vehicles. They emphasized to the kids how big of an investment a car is and that it’s important to take care of them.
Following the presentation, the group headed outside to learn how to check engine oil, change a tire, and more.
“A lot of people don’t even know how to open their hood, they don’t know how to check the air pressure or what the air’s supposed to be at,” said Full Throttle Automotive Owner Edward Caswell. “So for me it’s just the opportunity to come along and meet with the kids and talk to them about it.”
