  • FIS/SMS GT and Acceleration tours Tesla Gigafactory
    FIS/SMS GT and Acceleration tours Tesla Gigafactory
    Three groups of Fernley Intermediate School and Silverland Middle School Gifted, Talented, and Acceleration students toured the Tesla Gigfactory to discover and explore ideas related to sustainability and clean energy efficiency. Students learned how Tesla uses technology to be more efficient in manufacturing and how their products will assist with ensuring a clean energy future. Students experienced the benefits of direct communication within a collaborative work environment, as well as, saw strategies put into place that are necessary for effective problem solving. Robotics and automation was a particular point of interest for many students. Students were also fascinated by the plant wall and how an indoor growing system positively impacts the air quality within the factory.

    The Fernley Area Gifted, Talented, and Acceleration Program is extremely grateful for all those at Tesla who welcomed our group of future engineers and scientists. We look to continue this education/business partnership to ensure Nevada leads the way to a clean energy future!
