ACTIVITIES
Mr. Fern will be discussing the basics of automotive maintenance required to achieve the Automotive Maintenance MB. This is a great opportunity to become familiar with the vehicles that we all rely on so heavily in our daily lives. Most people have no idea what magic is happening under the hood of a modern automobile. For those that just started driving, or will be soon, this gives the scout a better understanding and practical experience to perform routine maintenance on their vehicles. From tire rotation to running engine diagnostic codes, this will be a great hands-on orientation, filled with getting your hands dirty and learning something that will save you time and money throughout one’s life.
