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 →
