Local high school students from Apollo High School in San Jose are working with a group of University of Michigan students in a V2X connected vehicle hands-on laboratory during ITS America San Jose.

The students will work with mentors to design their own connected and autonomous vehicles and use 3D printer technologies to build the vehicles. The completed cars will be on display at Tuesday's keynote session.

The program was kicked off at a press conference Monday morning attended by Jill M. Ingrassia, a managing director at AAA; keynote speaker Seval Oz; Elaina Farnsworth from Mobile Comply; Malcolm Dogherty from Caltrans; and Regina Hopper, president and CEO of ITS America.

Speakers at the press conference touted science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education in the US and the importance of exposing students to connected and autonomous vehicle technologies.
