Event Report

We had no speakers at this EVent, but several Forsyth Tech CC Transportation instructors brought their classes to our outdoor and indoor demonstrations. These are auto technicians in training, and many had never ridden any kind of EV. Dozens of students and staff rode the Light EVs, especially the CycleBoard and the HoverKart.

Unusual/popular rides
  • Tesla Model S Plaid test rides
  • Micro-mobility demos - CycleBard and Hover Kart rides
  • Makerspace 3D printing and machining demos
  • Harley-Davidson LiveWire on display

Note the summary of all our TEVA of NC DEED EVents here including ones where we were guest presenters.
