Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, Division of Climate, Coastal and Energy and Delaware Technology Student Association (TSA)
Opportunity for Delaware student teams grades 5-8 to participate in a competition of designing and racing solar-powered model cars. Funding is intended to increase students' interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields and encourage teamwork by providing them with a hands-on, multidisciplinary exercise in renewable energy.
Students 5th through 8th grade build and race their own solar-powered model cars in this statewide challenge of creativity, engineering, and speed. Participants experience the automotive design process when they research and conceptualize a design, make drawings, build a model from the design, and race the solar-powered car model.
The Division of Climate, Coastal & Energy will provide each participating school with two starter Junior Solar Sprint Kits, each consisting of a solar panel, an electric motor, and guidelines.
