Stella goes USA

25 - 09 - 2014

Stella visited the USA! The whole trip is reported at Stellagoesusa.com.

From the moment Stella and her team arrived in the Bay Area the 16th in the afternoon, the rollercoaster was on. In the correct order Stella visited the Consulate General’s residence, Tesla, NXP, Stanford, State Capitol in Sacramento, Rio Linda Middle School, UCDavis, Tesla, Cupertino, Santa Cruz and the Consulate General’s residence again.  Without time for decent sleep the team got their energy from the enthusiasm of all people we visited. People are not afraid to ask questions and share their toughts on Stella, from the 8 year olds at Rio Linda Middle School to the 70 year olds that drove their custom build electric car during the world record attempt in Cupertino, from the engineers at NXP to the artists in Santa Cruz and from the students at UCDavis and Stanford to the legislators at State Capitol.

Things to take home when we fly back tomorrow morning are, among this enthusiasm, the knowledge that electric mobility is the future not only in Brabant but also in California, the honor that Stella inspires children to be engineers but of course also the fact that Stella is now not only World Champion, but also Guiness World Record holder!

Stella Goes USA was an amazing experience!
