Community investment through education is an integral aspect of our team. We are committed to giving back to the community that has supported our endeavours through the years by sharing our passion for renewable energy. Our team invests in the local community by participating in various conferences and events to promote sustainable energy practices.
We also strive to educate and inspire youth by organizing school visits. During these visits, we bring one of our cars for display and engage with students through interactive presentations. Our goal is to provide young people with knowledge and practical solutions for a more sustainable living. As part of our community outreach program, our team visited 18 schools in 2012, reaching out to approximately 3,500 students ranging from kindergarten to grade twelve.
Additionally, the Solar Car Team conducts an annual Alberta Tour with our latest solar car. This is one of the largest events of our community outreach program. In 2013, we were able to engage with over 1,000 students and community members during the Schulich Delta Alberta Tour (SDAT) in the span of 6 days. The team also attended other large-scale community outreach events that same year, including the BP A+ for Energy Conference and the Mayor’s Environmental Expo.
If you are interested in arranging a school visit with our team, please contact our Communication Manager Raj Boongaling.
