Tours to Tesla Gigafactory 1

Envirolution is proud to partner with Tesla to facilitate school tours to Gigafactory NV, located right here in the Reno/Sparks area. Tesla provides the venue and facilitates the guided tour that students receive. Envirolution handles the logistics of getting students to and from the Gigafactory, in addition to providing them with a hands-on STEAM lesson during their visit. Tesla volunteers deserve special recognition — they are actual employees that donate their time to this program! They deliver a short presentation to students about who they are, what they do, and why choosing a STEAM career contributes to our collective goal of creating a sustainable future.

Since spring of 2019, 1,464 students have toured the factory with over 30 classrooms!
