Engineering’s solar-powered cars race to learn


After creating their own solar-powered cars, the engineering science class competed in a race down the main hallway on Nov. 2 and 3. The students were split into groups, and each group designed and built a model solar-powered car. The competition lasted 30 minutes, split into 10 minutes of ‘daylight’ where students could use the lights to move their cars, 10 minutes of ‘night’ where the students could only use stored energy to push the cars and ten more minutes of ‘daylight.’
