Pat McCue is the automotive technology teacher for the Northshore Automotive Technology program at Bothell High School in Bothell, WA. Before that he was an ASE and Ford Master Technician. In 2012 he and his students converted a 2003 BMW 330i to an all electric and presented the project at the WSU Imagine Tomorrow competition. This garnered the attention of an education research foundation titled Foundry 10 and a new project blossomed where they built an all electric dragster they named Shock & Awe. Foundry 10 was started in 2013 with the goal of gaining a better understanding of how people learn.
