Thanks to our Green Event Supporters

Spring 2022

Hello AB PIP STEM Green Event Supporters!

The organizers of the AB PIP STEM Spring Green Energy Meetup + Induction Cooking Demo thank you for your contributions and all you did to make the community-building event such a success!

It was fun to see the students and Acton Boxborough community enjoying induction cooktop chocolate fondue samples and talking to electric vehicle owners! We shared so much information about green energy including the ‘Science of Induction Cooking’ and the safety of Electric Vehicles (EVs). Over a dozen EV owners came or rode green to the event in their Teslas, Bolts, Mustang Mach-Es, Toyota Priuses, Rav-4 Plug-in Hybrids + E-bikes!

Special thanks to AB PIP STEM partners + supporters including:

Thanks to these generous business hospitality + event donors:

Gratitude to our communication + media partners including:,, Market Dynamics, Acton TV + the Acton UPS Store.

In addition to raising the visibility of green energy, this outdoor event took the place of our annual AB FUNdraiser, and we raised nearly $500 in donations toward portable induction cooktop kits for the Acton Memorial Library + the Boxborough Sargent Memorial Library of Things, Energize Acton outreach + sustainability resources, and local food pantry items and dollars.
