On Saturday, November 9th, Team Marine went to the Santa Monica Pier for a Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) event. There we showcased our recently converted 1971 Volkswagen Super Beetle to people attending the event. Community outreach is pivotal in getting our cause and mission spread. Furthermore, being at such a tourist attraction maximized outreach to a global scale; we educated a lot of curious people about the effects of combustion engines on the environment. Our team coach, Mr. Kay, parked his Nissan Leaf next to Volts Wattson to showcase alternate methods of going electric in an affordable way. Converting gas to electric can be expensive; we did the conversion to demonstrate that high school students were capable of overcoming technological and economic hurdles, but also to highlight an important solution to our friends in the community. We educated youth and college students as well as others. We were able to extend outreach to a plethora of people thanks to STEAM. Check out their website here.
