Children will be able to visually examine the device and functionality of the green car, as well as to drive it. The power engineers will describe in detail the principles of fuel economy, environmental impact of this type of transport compared to the petrol counterpart. In addition to the theoretical material, videos, slides and cartoons presented in the classroom, energy-saving technologies used in the branch will be shown as an illustrative example.
