Carolina STEM Challenge: Solar Car Design Kit

Turn your students into automotive design engineers! The challenge: design a model car powered by solar cells and an electric motor. Weight, gear ratios, sun angle, aerodynamics, traction, friction, front- or rear-wheel drive, and wheelbase are all design factors that are considered. Finally, students race their cars to determine the most successful design. This activity is designed for a class of 32 students working cooperatively in 8 groups of 4.
