As parents, teachers, and students gear up for a new school year, we wanted to provide some quick and easy ways to “go greener.” One of the easiest ways to become more sustainable is to take inventory of the school supplies already in your home! If items such as backpacks or clothing need to be replaced, check out your local second-hand stores and thrift shops. These options will help you reduce your use while also saving you money!Read More →

On July 18th, Envirolution team members traveled to the UC Davis campus to kickstart the week-long annual Teck trek for 90 8th-grade girls from across California. Our workshop theme was titled  “How electric cars can save the world.” Participants used the engineering design process to build a simple electric motor and learned that if electric vehicles made up just 21% of the total car market it could reduce CO2 emissions by over 7.66 gigatons which is the equivalent of planting 9 million acres of trees (5x the size of the US)!   Thank you, AAUW of California for inviting us!Read More →

Right before our move, the entire Envirolution staff, with all our wonderful new staff additions (except Amari, who is working remotely), went out for a team-bonding brunch. We learned many new things about each other and had a great, well-deserved time after all the moving stress. Read More →

Pardon our dust! We are so pleased to announce that we have moved into a bigger location, centrally located near the airport. This new space features a large training room to host teachers, a conference room, and six office spaces to accommodate all of our staff and volunteers. While we’re not quite ready to open our doors to the public just yet, we are so excited to welcome you to this space in the coming months. As we get settled, be sure to check out our calendar for future events, and our social media to see how we’re settling in. Read More →

As a continuation of our Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day in partnership with Tesla, we were thrilled to offer the simple motor activity to girls that weren’t able to participate with us in February. Over two weekends in May, volunteer Tesla employees were able to connect and inspire 26 middle school girls from across the country to learn about the engineering design process. Thank you to everyone that was able to participate.“It was a lot of fun and the presenters were engaging and ready to help. They were also funny at times.” – ParticipantRead More →
