Haley's Senior Project Portfolio

A Basic Car Maintenance Event

What did this product entail?

This product was composed of two parts - learning the maintenance myself, and then teaching my knowledge to an audience at an event. I mainly catered my event toward an audience of teenaged girls because I hoped it would be relatable for them to learn from a teenage girl who does not know a lot about cars herself.

Haley's Car Care Workshop

Saturday, Feb. 7th, 12-2pm

Sixes United Methodist Church, Canton, GA, United States

Canton, GA

This was the actual date, time, and location of my event. Luckily, the weather was perfect for an outdoor event. There were about 10 people who attended the event, most fit within my target audience goals.
