Thanks to our Green Event Supporters
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:
EnergizeActon.org and the Town of Acton Sustainability Department for inspiring local green actions + hosting the EV meetup to ‘Drive & Ride’ Green.
