In celebration of the national event “Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day,” Envirolution & Tesla welcomed over 400 girls at 11 sites in 5 states for a day filled with hands-on activities, inspiring presentations from female leaders and behind the scenes tours. The students at Gigafactory NV also received a special presentation by Nevada Senator Catherine Cortez Masto and Assemblywoman Sarah Peters.  With the help of over 180 Tesla volunteers, Envirolution was able to make this event a huge success.  For next year, we’re shooting for 1,000 Girls!“Thank you so much for this opportunity it was amazing and I will remember it forever. You guys opened my eyes to all the possibilities. The advice was awesome and I am going to start learning and testing my own ideas!!”— Pine Middle school student   

“Only 14 percent of engineers are women, and events like this expose these young female future leaders to the variety of engineering careers available,” said Envirolution Co-Executive Director Vanessa Robertson. “Envirolution and Tesla are proud to partner with Carson City School District in these initiatives. Together we will continue to build the future workforce in Nevada.”
