When 11 Cincinnati high school students started a summer program at Woodward Technical High School to learn mechanical engineering from Toyota engineers, they weren’t exactly chomping at the bit.

“At first, you could tell they weren’t really interested,” said Robbie Tackett, one of the five Toyota engineers who spent five days a week for the last six weeks working on technical skills with the students. “But once we got to the hands-on activities, actually connecting the circuits and doing the programming, they became more engaged.”
