I am the manager of the Public Programs department at a hands-on scinece museum in San Francisco called the Exploratorium. We are working on putting together an event for Thursday, October 7th as a part of our series of monthly After Dark evening events for adults. Our October event is called "Sol Systems" is being designed around the theme of appropriate technology.
As a part of that event we are seeking a DIY electric car and builder (a conversion is what I'm thinking, but a ground-up build could be great too) who hails from the San Francisco Bay Area to display and discuss their work that evening in our Museum. We seek to show our visitors a few innovative ways that people have addressed the the need for approaching technology in more "appropriate" ways. In this spirit, we feel that a do-it-yourself electric car would do a much better job at capturing the spirit of the concept of "what can I do?" than a factory built electric car (such as a Tesla Roadster or similar). Also...truth be told, the Exploratorium's was born out of the DIY spirit. So, the fit is very natural for us.
If this sounds interesting to you, please send me a little info about your car...some pics or links to pics would be great too. Feel free to respond either in this thread or directly to me at [email protected]
Thanks so much for time...I can wait to see your rides!
