CONNECTING THE CLASSROOM TO THE REAL WORLD

  Career Quest is an engaging and collaborative program based in education, community impact, student outreach and business involvement. 

Career Quest connects businesses to students by exploring workplace STEAM and sustainability focused career opportunities. Through industry tours, customized business presentations and engaging hands-on activities, Career Quest focuses on the needs and mission of the business and provides standards-based educational experiences for students.  

Creating Virtual Tours for 2020-2021

During these ever changing and unprecedented times, we are working hard to continue to bring students and businesses together. Currently we are working with several businesses to create virtual presentations and facility tours. Our goal is to be able to deliver individual, hands-on material kits to schools for students to engage with us virtually. We anticipate having our first tour available in January, after winter break. Please check back for more details.

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 STEM 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 STEM 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!
