Mike Barber, CEO of Cooks Collision, talks with high school teachers from throughout the country who visited the Davis business on Feb. 7. He's describing the work flow at the body repair shop to give the teachers information to take back to their classrooms and students. The tour ended with a visit to the estimation class Cooks teaches in conjunction with the Universal Technical Institute to prepare students to work in the auto repair business.

Thirty high school teachers from across the nation visited Cooks Collision in Davis last week to learn how to incorporate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education into their vocational technology classrooms.

Each of the visitors has experience teaching high school students how to work on automobiles, including repairing cars involved in collisions. The two-day workshop Feb. 7-8 was organized by the Universal Technical Institute in Sacramento.

UTI offers 18 different programs ranging from 45 to 99 weeks. Core programs include automotive, diesel and industrial, and collision repair and refinishing.

Its graduates are employed at Cooks Collision as well as at Maita Toyota, Freeman Collision Center (Lexus), Union Pacific, Peterson Caterpillar and Holt of California.
