ENVS will hold the first-ever model solar car race on the Fitness Quad at 1:30 PM on Tuesday, May 6! Students in this term’s introductory Environmental Science and Technology class built miniature (approximately 8” wide by 12” long) solar-powered cars using guidelines set by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and the Solar Sprint event. Student teams chose their preferred design; their cars (each one unique in design, durability, and appearance) will race on Tuesday. About six cars will compete in each heat, with the top three cars advancing to the next round. A one-foot tall barrier will be built at the end of the course into which all the cars must crash. The fastest and most durable car will be pronounced the winner!
