Thank you for attending and participating in a very successful event!

This year we were honored to host three events in celebration of this National day!

Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day is part of a national event dedicated to inspiring and encouraging young girls, non-binary, and genderqueer students to consider a career in engineering. Participants receive behind-the-scenes tours of cutting-edge businesses, participate in engineering hands-on activities, and learn about engineering careers along with the inspiring women behind them.

This year we had 90 students from Lyon County our to Tesla Gigafactory NV, and nationwide, we coordinated 14 IGED events at Tesla locations for with 500 students!

February 21st Virtual Introduce a Girl to Engineering

On Tuesday, February 21st, Envirolution and Tesla provided a virtual event to middle school students across the globe. This was our third year doing a virtual event, and we were so excited to have more than 3000 students registered from 42 counties and 43 states!

Friday, February 24th – Event in Partnership with UNR

Due to weather we had to make the difficult decision to postpone our event in partnership with UNR. We are already planning for 2024 and are excited to bring the students back to the University for this engaging and empowering day,

FIRST Nevada Mission: To inspire young people to become science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering, and technology skills, inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership.

FIRST Overview: FIRST is an acronym: For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. It’s a non-profit workforce development program that challenges Pre K-12th grade students to work as a team to design, build and program a robot. This friendly competition gets students excited about careers in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math by providing them with hands-on applications of what is being taught in the classroom.  To learn more about FIRST Nevada programs, visit and for funding opportunities to start a new team, use this link.
