In this workshop, students learn how to assess the impact of technical innovation and historical importance through the lens of the automobile. Students participate in discussions and design sprints focused around determining criteria for judging innovation from a number of perspectives - engineering, aesthetic, historical, etc. They will then decide on criteria and used these as part of a judging team at the 2018 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. The Pebble Beach event is the leading concours for automobiles in the United States. Using the criteria established by the students, the judging team, including the students, will decide the recipient of the Stanford CARS award for 2018 and present it on the lawn at Pebble Beach Lodge in August.
