If there are more than one event on a given day, then make the == Header == at the top of the page include a short description of both events so that they will both appear in the summary for that day. Then create two or more === Sub Headers === (Notice the 3 = signs instead of 2) for each separate event on that day.

First Event details and description text goes here.
===Another EVent Also===

You can also add ==== Sub Sub Headers ==== for an event if there is a lot of information for that event, perhaps someone might want to add a ==== Photos ==== section. The simplest way to add photos is to upload them to the site (you may need to ask for an account to do this). Take a look at the Photos page for a list of EVents that had photos added.

Then just list them in a gallery block.

Additional [[Category:]] tags can be added to the top of the page, we do not use many categories at the moment, but they help to organize pages and help visitors find related pages. For example there might be a Tesla Category and any event with a Tesla at it could have the Tesla category.

Kenmore Students and Parents Show Interest in EVs

I have to be honest – I was wondering how many junior high students would get their parents to spend an evening at the school being lectured on the value of Electric Vehicles. When I showed up (late I might add), the room was nearly filled to capacity, and fully engaged with Stephen’s presentation.

I thought the turn out was great, and I was encouraged to see our future leaders showing such a sincere curiosity and interest in Electric Vehicles and alternative modes of transportation. Lots of soon to be driving kids had suggestions and question ranging from perpetual motion to running vehicles off of the force created when liquid nitrogen expands into it’s gaseous form.

The parents – as well as some faculty of the school also asked great questions from how long until we can buy one from the big automakers, to how far can they go and can the batteries be recycled. All of which I thought were fielded and addressed well by Mr. Lough.

Following the speech and an informative question & answer session, the group got to see the X1 smoke the Ferrari and Porsche in the quarter mile on the large video screen. Unfortunately, some videos were not able to launch – likely an “I’m a mac, and you’re a pc so let’s not play nice issue”.

The real fun began when we were dismissed to view the 5 cars that were on display (thanks again to everyone who was able to bring their cars, trucks, and “motorcycles”). I took several pictures which are in a photo gallery at the bottom of this post. If anyone wants the fully uncompressed image(s), just email me (keep in mind they will be about 4MB each).

The genuine curiosity & enthusiasm from the parents and students was amazing. There was also a representative from the Bothell Reporter (please correct if it was a different paper) there to cover the event, thanks finding out about it from someone’s blog. His name escapes me at the moment, but he got a ride in Jeff Finn’s Voltrunner at the end of the night, and hopefully he will have great things to say about the experience – and EVs in general.

Please feel free to make any corrections, add names, edit this as you see fit. It’s my first “post” on this site, and I just wanted to share the photos and a summary of the event.
