Solar Boat Race Competition

 

 

“Solar Boat Race – Power from the Sun” is a design and build project to promote and develop an interest among school students in Engineering and Technology, and in the use of renewable and solar power. It is hoped that by doing this our future citizens, scientists and engineers will be more aware of, and participate in, a more environmentally friendly approach to energy usage.


It is a challenge open to teams of secondary school students (up to 3 members per team, and 2 teams per school). Each team’s entry must obtain basic energy from the sun via standard solar panels. No batteries or mains adaptors are allowed.
