The Austin Hatcher Foundation’s Industrial Arts STEAM Education Therapy helps children with cancer and their families recover from the effects of the disease and its treatments. The builds are overseen and nut & bolted by automotive professionals, and some parts of the build were completed by partner automotive professionals in their shop.
