Story:

 

 

 

Watch this year's brightest high school automotive education students from all over the U.S. battle it out to see who will be named America's Top Technician at the 2013 National Automotive Technology Competition.  With new cars getting increasingly sophisticated so too must the young men and women who will service and repair them in the future. 



Who:

 

 

High school seniors from all over the U.S. have competed for the chance to represent their states in the National Automotive Technology Competition. The National Finals, which pits the best against the best, will take place April 3rd at the New York International Automobile Show.



What:

 

 

 

It's a test of skill, a measure of knowledge, and a race against time, all rolled into one. Each two-person team of high school vocational students must diagnose and repair a number of problems under a car's hood against the stopwatch.  Each "bug" correctly repaired is worth a number of points, depending on the level of difficulty. The student's overall knowledge is also tested through a series of written and workstation tests.



Visual:

 

The contest will feature 30 two-person teams of high school technicians under the cars' hoods racing to repair them.
