Hello Tesla Owners! My name is Joe Graber and I am an Engineering Instructor at Everett Community College. One of the classes I teach is an Introduction to Engineering Course where students learn basic engineering analysis through hands-on projects. One of the projects I have developed is based on Electric Vehicles. Students perform calculations to compare the cost and environmental impact of electric versus internal combustion vehicles. We did this project for the first time last spring and in order to get the students interested and provide hands-on experience I planned a "EV Day". The Nissan dealership brought a couple leafs and Alysashley79 and dsm363 brought their Teslas. The day was a HUGE success!! I really want to thank Alysashley79 and dsm363 for their time. I can honestly say that I have never seen the students so excited to learn. I also saw many attitudes change. I saw some of my "gear heads" students go from EV haters to EV enthusiasts after a single ride. I would love to do the same thing this quarter so I am looking for volunteers who would like to show off their cars to group of enthusiastic engineering students. Last time we started off with a 45 minute question and answer session and then gave rides to students 4 at a time. It is completely up to you whether you would like to simply answer questions and show your car, or take students on short rides (no students will be driving). There will be one or two Leafs there at the same time that students will be able to ride in. So if you are hesitant to let students ride along, don't let that stop you from coming. We have multiple sections of this course so I am arranging two different days. Here are the times and dates: Thursday October 9th from 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Monday October 13th from 10:30 AM - 1:30 PM ish We are located at 2000 Tower Street in Everett. There are blink chargers located on campus. The 10/13 session is longer because it will actually be for two class sections (10:30 - 11:50 AM and 12:20 - 1:30 PM with 1/2 hour lunch break). Each session will be approximate 25 students. The Thursday session will be a little smaller. If you can only make one session or even only come for a short time we would still love to have you! Please let me know if you are interested or if you have any questions and thank you for your support! You can send me a PM or email me at jgraber at everettcc dot edu. Thanks!
