Ford gives Fresno kids lessons in safety, science

Ford Motor Co. took its prototypes on the road Wednesday, showing off its technical toys at the Boys and Girls Club in Fresno.

Representatives from Ford, who are on a 50-city tour, used the demonstration of future safety features -- smart sensors, wireless technologies, inflatable seat belts and crash avoidance/driver assist systems -- to encourage kids to stay in school and focus on excelling in math and science.
