Mini-solar car race attracts 72 schools

Some 280 students and teachers from 72 secondary schools were involved in making mini-cars powered by the sun at the 9th National Junior Solar Sprint Competition organised by the School of EEE and the SP Young Engineers Club.

Held on 1 June 2007, the speed demons raced down a 25-metre long 4-lane track which took the SP Young Engineers Club three months to construct.

Last year's champion, Woodlands Ring Secondary School, won the fatest car race in 9.27 seconds to retain the coveted trophy. Henderson Secondary School swept both the Best Designed Car and Most Popular Car titles.

The mini solar-car race aimed to enhance the students' awareness for renewable energy and also to expose them to ways to protect the environment.
