Video Details Manufacturing Students’ Creation of Battery Pack

Penn College manufacturing engineering technology students Brian J. Pernot and Bryce L. Kuszmaul have spent the past year constructing, impressively from scratch, an intricate battery pack intended for lithium batteries and an electric car. The project – featured in a video added to the college’s YouTube Channel – was exciting and challenging, and serves as a real-world template for the pair. “It’s going to give them a jump on what they’re really going to be doing when they graduate from here and enter the workforce,” said Howard W. Troup, maintenance mechanic/millwright at the college.
