Come to the races with a solar car! Can your car use enough of the sun’s light to make it to the finish line first?!

Students, working in teams, will apply math, science, and creativity to constrict and race a model solar car! The competition uses preliminary time trials before progressing to a double elimination round tournament for the finals. Cars are also judged on their construction report, design creativity and ingenuity.

The Junior Solar Sprint Competition is open to students in grades four through eight. Please review the rules for the Junior Solar Sprint via the link below. The registration deadline for teachers is Wednesday, June 12, 2017.

Want to participate? Ask your Teacher to contact our Competition Coordinator, Kerri Mackay.
