This Drive Electric Earth Day (DEED) event will be held in conjunction with the huge Rapid City Earth Day Expo that is being sponsored by Dakota Rural Action, the Rapid City Sustainability Committee, and Western Dakota Tech. It will focus on sustainability and will include a number of speakers and presentations about climate change and sustainability issues, so having a large number of EVs there is very fitting. There will be about 35 tables and booths inside the Event Center for exhibitors from various community organizations. It will also include lots of family-centered activities, games, prizes, plus food trucks too. We expect a great attendance and hope to capture a large number of people at the EV event by using special layout planning to focus on WDT's Automotive Department. In addition, another interesting thing happening at this Earth Day Expo is that folks can also tour an electronics recycling facility located at WDT called Echo Works that accepts used computers, cell phones and other electronics so they can be broken down and separated into their useful components, including electrical parts, batteries, metals, plastics, etc. and then sent off-site to appropriate companies for further recycling. Students at WDT plus disabled workers from Black Hills Works operate this recycling center and it is located near where the EV cars will be exhibited.
