Our next STEM Electrathon Event will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2023, in conjunction with Energy Whiz at Florida Solar Energy Center, 1679 Clearlake Road, Cocoa FL 32922.
Some of our teams are staying at the Best Western Space Shuttle Inn, 3455 Cheney Hwy which is approximately 16 miles from the venue. Across the street from the Best Western is a Days Inn by Wyndham 3755 Cheney Hwy.
We could have a group dinner on Friday and/or Saturday (or both) at the Durango Steakhouse and/or Florida Seafood Restaurant. Charlie says he plans to eat at both of them, one on Friday night, the other on Saturday night.
At 930 am, April 22, 2023, the opening ceremony for Energy Whiz will take place. We ask all our teams, board and guests to attend the opening ceremony.
