Solar Car Challenge

NULL, United States
Target Applicant:

The Solar Car Challenge was established in 1993 to help motivate students in science and engineering, and to increase alternative energy awareness. The Challenge, a part of The Winston School Solar Science Academy, teaches high school students around the world how to build roadworthy solar cars.

The Winston Solar Education Program provides a safe environment for teams to display their solar cars. On even-numbered years, we share the fun of the world-famous Texas Motor Speedway; on odd-numbered years, teams drive cross-country to share their projects with millions of people.
