Event Report

Va. Union Univ. students were excited about the EVs that were on display. They sat in them and played with the touch screen. They asked questions. They were amazed when the Tesla Model S was moved in Summon mode w/o a driver being in the car. Several expressed interest in obtaining an EV in the future.

Event Description


Electric vehicles (EVs) will be part of VUU’s CreationFest 2019 in celebration of Earth Day/Week.  VUU will have a tour of its greenhouse and planting activity, East African Coffee ritual, scavenger hunt, lawn party, and tabling events as well as film screenings (during the week).
