The goal is to teach middle-school students about fuel-cell technology by letting them help assemble a hydrogen fuel-cell model car. Students also learn about the environmental and economic benefits of the technology and of GM's fuel-cell research and development work.

The program is part of GM's nationwide in-school fuel-cell education program called Fuel Cells: Driving the Future. The Tech Tour for Students is making its way through five U.S. cities, including Albany-Troy, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Sacramento, in conjunction with the 2003 GM Technology Tour.
