Overview

Using our solar car kit to form the basis of an exciting solar car challenge that develops science technology engineering and mathematics (STEM) knowledge. Included here are a set of curriculum based guides and materials to help you plan and create your own outdoor solar challenge activity. Included in this download are examples of materials used at previous successful Solar Car Challenges.

Build single or double cell car, which has four options for front assembly and six options for gear transmission. Use a tetra pack carton for car body shell. Design/build wheels and body shells. Transform car into a gearbox solar boat. Virtual car assembly.

Regulations, curriculum based guides and worksheets to assist to create outdoor solar challenge activities for students to be challenged to construct the most clever and fast car. The resources encourage students to consider for themselves how to design and assemble the car for a rich and fun STEM experience. Provides the opportunity to use problem solving skills to improve performance i.e. speed. How-to run a solar car design challenge. Technical information and assembly guides provided.
