Kids in Brevard, North Carolina recently had the opportunity to learn about automotive work at Blue Ridge Community College, reports Transylvania Times.

The C.A.R. (Cool Automotive Repair) Summer Camp was held June 26 at Blue Ridge’s campus in Transylvania County.

The one-day camp taught 7th-9th graders from Transylvania and Henderson counties how to perform a variety of maintenance jobs on a vehicle, including changing a tire, jump-starting batteries, and changing the oil.

At the end of the course, the kids put their skills to the test in a Pit Crew Challenge, where they competed to perform maintenance tasks on vehicles as quickly as possible.
