Dallastown High Building Electric Vehicle with Allied Wire

You may remember a post back in April 2010, about the Dallastown High School Metal Technology class and their project to build a working boat from scratch. Their teacher, Matt Chilcoat, contacted us in October 2009 about a simple donation of scrap lengths of wire they could use to build the center console. We were happy to help and sent out odd lengths of hook-up wire in various colors.

Late last month, Mr. Chilcoat contacted us again regarding their project for the 2011-2012 school year. This time around, the class will be building an electric vehicle! One thing stayed the same: they just needed scrap lengths of bare copper wire, which we were happy to contribute. And just like last time, they’ll be updating us with photos of the progress.

Imagine our surprise, when a photo appeared in our inbox of Mr. Chilcoat and his class from the 2010-2011 school year.  It turns out they had leftover wire from our first donation that went into their classic hot rod build from last year! Check it out:

If the boat & trailer and the hot rod are any indication, this year’s electric vehicle is going to be great!

Good luck Dallastown High MT Students! We can’t wait to see the finished product.
