Gathering of the Vibes

The Gathering of the Vibes is an excellent opporunity for the Solar Bus to turn people on to solar ideas. Unlike some of the other events we go to, we're not preaching to the choir here. Many people there had no idea that solar energy really works and they were amazed at our displays. We baked cookies and pizza in our solar oven, and we had many other working displays of solar energy including a solar powered fan, and a solar robot. And of course many people wanted to hear about our engine which runs on biodiesel and vegetable oil.

One-year-old Oren "drives" the Solar Bus, as the sun sets in the background and the people dance to the music.

People are eager to learn.

At night a huge drum circle ensues, right next to the Solar Bus. Made it hard for the babies to sleep!
