Solar Cars

solar cars

In this apprenticeship students will engage in the engineering process to design, build, test, and revise a solar car according to the specifications set forth by the Junior Solar Sprint (JSS). Students will work in teams to apply their knowledge of solar power, vehicle mechanics, mathematics, and engineering to several iterations of a car design. Each iteration will be improved by rigorous testing and redesigned based on data. By the end of the apprenticeship students will be qualified to compete in the JSS. Some students may actually be able to compete in the JSS while others will compete against each other on campus.
