From Trash to Treasure--Rebuilding a '66 Vespa
Boissonnault, Tom
Tech Directions, v70 n4 p22-23 Nov 2010
This article describes how the author got his 8th-grade students thinking about greener modes of transportation--and got them excited about technology education--in the course of rebuilding a badly damaged 1966 Vespa scooter. This turned out to be a wonderful project because it included almost the entire 8th grade, and showed students that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and are willing to work hard for it.
