Indeed, Cadman-LT, hands-on is the only way to learn. As a journalist now 16 years into my career, I realize I learned more on the job than I ever did in school. I think this is also true in life. So the more student engineers can get their hands dirty in the field so to speak, the better prepared they will be for their careers.

Well, not only that but, just any project where the students get involved. Not reading a book. It's exciting to them and they WANT to learn. Books with projects....there you go. Not so boring.

Elizabeth, it's any project really. It's hands on stuff. Best way to learn IMO. We didn't really have such things back when I was in school. Best way to learn, hands-on! The real world is different than a book.

"I'm working on a couple of stories this week about new battery designs in fact."

Elizabeth, great. Looking forward for your new works.

Will do, Mydesign. I'm working on a couple of stories this week about new battery designs in fact.

"You're probably right, Mydesign, and that's the general consensus in the field, too, I think."

Elizabeth, any updates about recent developments in this area. Or keep posting when you have.

"Then again, battery storage also has been what's hindered EVs and hybrids, and that problem is taking a substantial amount of time to solve as well."

Elizabeth, all these factors are true and I think it may take years to realize the commercial production of such vehiciles.
