MCC is SO HOT, we had to call the Fire Department! No, REALLY! The Automotive Fundamentals class got an unexpected lesson in fire safety today when a car they were using for a class assignment caught fire.

The RTC was evacuated and the Flint Fire Department was called. The fire was contained to the one vehicle and quickly extinguished. Students in classes held in the east wing of the Regional Technology Center get the day off to allow ventilation of that section of the building overnight. The remainder of the building was re-opened and classes have resumed.

Shout out to the Flint Fire Department Engines 31 & 51, Truck 15 and Squads 1 & 2 for their speedy resolution to the situation!

Science is SO cool!
 
The science behind exploding phone batteries | The Verge

'... To understand what makes a battery safe, it’s helpful to know how they work. There are two electrodes, or electrical conductors, on opposite sides. One electrode holds positively charged ions and is called the cathode. The cathode is filled with lithium and that is where the “fuel” is stored. The opposite electrode holds negatively charged ions and is called the anode.

During charging, lithium ions move from the cathode to the anode. When the battery is in use, the lithium moves in the opposite direction. In between are chemicals called electrolytes that conduct the current by helping ions move more easily between the two sides. But even though ions need to move from side to side, the anode and the cathode themselves should never touch because they’ll redirect energy to the electrolytes. To prevent this from happening, battery makers insert separators in between.

That’s what went wrong with the Galaxy Note 7: the separators were flawed and let the two electrodes touch. “This is considered the worst possible failure because it will most certainly lead to fire and possibly even an explosion,” says Archer. When the electrodes come into contact, all the energy being pumped into the battery goes directly to the electrolytes in the middle instead of in the electrodes on the side.

An exploding phone seems like a freak accident, but the same chemical properties that make batteries work also make them likely to catch fire. Samsung is learning this the hard way, as it becomes...
