What is the Solar Sprint Challenge?
The Junior Solar Sprint competition is for 7th and 8th grade students. The goal is to design and race a solar powered car.
This is the 21st year of the competition!
Race day is Saturday, May 7th, 2011 at Richards Elementary
Students work in teams of 2
or 3 to build a small model car which is powered entirely by solar energy.
SAE engineers from Cummins will be available to support you as you work through the design process.
You will learn about teamwork, completing a design, working toward a deadline, problem solving, and many other things.
Above all else, you will have a lot of fun!
