Teams of middle school students from around the state will gather to build and race solar-powered model cars in the Annual Junior Solar Sprint.
The Junior Solar Sprint is a statewide challenge of ingenuity, engineering, and speed for students in fifth- through eighth-grade. It is part of a national competition and is co-sponsored in Delaware by the Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy and the Delaware Technology Student Association.
Middle schools across the state are invited to register up to two teams of two to four students. Registration is free.
The Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy will provide each participating school with two starter kits, each including a solar panel, motor, and wheels.
