Students and faculty members of the Mechanical Engineering Architecture, Electronics, and Communication Engineering, Computer Science, and Aviation Mechanical Technology were all able to experience the company’s hybrid technology. On top of this, even student-trainees from Don Bosco’s Technical Vocational courses were also given the chance to drive the hybrid vehicles around. They were also able to discover the inner workings of how both models function both as a vehicle and as a hybrid. Aside from the hybrid vehicles, the students were also treated to interactive displays and exhibits. Notable attractions were the stationary bike charger and multimedia showcases.
The director of Don Bosco Technical College Winston Dereje states that the partnership between the school and Toyota will help the students understand the science behind the hybrid technology and how it helps the environment. As the Philippines is entering the hybrid age, it is key that future technicians have a grasp of how the technology works.
