Event Report

EV's at Rockville Science day
Rockville, MD  Apr 21, 2024

The City Captains were Robert Borkowski, Scott Wilson and Bob Erdman.

The event was part of Rockville Science Day, which has a huge variety of science and technology-related exhibits, activities, games and demos.  The event had approximately 4,000 visitors.

We would like to thank our EV owner volunteers who brought 13 EVs to display including: Chevy Bolt, Mercedes, Jaguar I-Pace, Lucid Air, Polestar 2, Sondors motorcycle, Tesla Model S, Tesla Model 3, Tesla Model X and Tesla Model Y.  It's important for the public to see the EVs, but also to talk with the owners to learn from their experiences and ask them questions.

There was a ride & drive using EVs from Tesla, Mercedes and Rivian.  Ford corporate brought a fleet of EVs.  The opportunity for the public to actually try out the EVs is an important part of the education as well.

There was a lot of space, so the static display was set up over a large area.

We acknowledge the support of Montgomery College in allowing us to use a parking lot for the display.  And especially the Rockville Science Center ( organizing the event.
