We Are The rocketeers!
Our club has been a part of our school's attempt to provide hands-on STEM education for 3 years. In our efforts to learn the principles of engineering we have learned and will continue to learn more about how we can utilize alternative sources of energy to power our solar car vehicle.
The Solar Car Challenge is the top project-based STEM Initiative helping motivate students in Science, Engineering, and Alternative Energy. The SCC Education Program developed in 1993 as a high school extra-curricular program, and later evolved into the Solar Car Challenge Foundation.
The Solar Car Challenge Education Program teaches high school students how to plan, design, engineer, build, and race roadworthy solar cars. This is accomplished through six national teaching workshops, on-site visits, curriculum materials, and summer camps.
The end product of each 15-month education cycle is the Solar Car Challenge: a closed-track event at the world famous Texas Motor Speedway, or a cross country event designed to give students an opportunity to show the country the product of their effort.
The Solar Car Challenge is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit education foundation.
