Electric Car Show (National Drive Electric Week)
September 8, 2018 @ 9:00 AM - 1:00 PMFree
Have an electric or plug in hybrid or want to learn about them? Come join us at Kingswood Oxford School on Saturday, September 8 for an electric vehicle showcase and robotics demo!
The EV Car Show is to be held on Saturday, September 8th, 2018 at the Kingswood Oxford School to promote the conversion to sustainable electric vehicles in the Hartford area. This EVent (pun intended) is organized by the Wyvern Robotics Team of Kingswood Oxford School in collaboration with the West Hartford Clean Energy Commission. The goal of the EVent is to encourage young people to take part in interactive, mentor-based STEM programs, in addition to promoting the use of electric vehicles in the Hartford area. We hope to engage members of the community, political leaders, local car dealerships, and local businesses in our electric vehicle car show, and to promote the idea that young people can become science and technology innovators.
Admission to the event is FREE, though any proceeds from donations made at the EVent will be used for the robotics team to purchase and supply parts to underprivileged youth in the New Haven area who cannot experience the benefits and learnings of robotics. The robotics team is committed to visiting and assisting these young children in learning about robotics, creating STEM leaders who will engineer the electric vehicles of the future.
