Back to School Sustainability Tip

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!

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
