Casey Putsch

He may not be a household word in educational circles, but he’s a rock star on Instagram and YouTube. In fact, Casey Putsch has been a Dean of Speed for dozens of aspiring engineers – both aeronautical and mechanical – out of his Toledo-area shop known as Genius Garage. Wearing his standard leather jacket, T-shirts and ball caps, Casey has been inspiring a good number of young people who have gone on to full-time employment and internship positions at some of the most competitive companies, ranging from Goodyear to Fiat-Chrysler and from Dana to Tesla to General Motors.

Going into its 7th year, Genius Garage is a 501(c)(3) public educational charity designed to bridge the gap from academia to industry by providing “dream shot” internships for college-aged students. It began its Racing Team program in 2014 when students from various academic majors, including engineering, design, business, and communications, formed their own “professional level” racing team. Students have gotten the chance to go on explorative field trips to places such as NASA, Pratt and Miller, and the National Museum of the United States Air Force. “Dean Casey” brings it all to life on his YouTube videos that make his students the stars of the show.
