Solar Car Challenge and Conference
The Solar Car Challenge is the top STEM education program designed to help motivate students in Science, Engineering, and Alternative Energy. We teach high school students how to plan, design, engineer, build, race, and evaluate roadworthy solar cars. Students demonstrate that green technology can create a better world. This is project-based learning at its best!
Science & Technology Magazine named the Solar Car Challenge as one of the top science & engineering programs in the country. The Challenge has 107 high school solar car projects in various stages of development in anticipation of an upcoming solar racing event. Teams are located in 30 states and Puerto Rico.
High School teams began preparation for the year-long project during education workshops scheduled in September 2012. Additional workshops, on-site visits, and mentor opportunities help propel the projects to a successful completion. After qualifying, teams get the opportunity to drive their solar cars from the Texas Motor Speedway July 23rd to the California Science Center arriving on July 30th.
