Shoreham, NY - July 16, 2014 - On Thursday, July 10th Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker joined the volunteers of the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe, Shoreham residents, and elected officials for the First Annual Nikola Tesla Day. The celebration, which took place on the 158th birthday of Nikola Tesla, was held at Tesla’s former Wardenclyffe laboratory in Shoreham.

Thanks to their dedication and vision, Suffolk County will never forget Nikola Tesla’s vast contributions to modern day technology.”
 
To make the celebration even more memorable, Tesla Science Center President Jane Alcorn announced that Elon Musk, owner of the Tesla Motors automobile company, has pledged $1 million to the future science museum.
