An engineering challenge with real results

The Victorian Model Solar Vehicle Challenge is an engineering competition undertaken by hundreds of students across Victoria, Grade 1 to Year 12. Students design and construct their own vehicle, be it a car or boat, powered only by the sun! They learn real skills in design, engineering, troubleshooting, sustainability and teamwork. The final vehicles are highly optimised machines with surprising power. The best designs will go on to compete in the Australian International Model Solar Challenge (AIMSC), against the greatest from across Australia and Taiwan. Past competitors have found a passion in design and engineering and have gone on to study in these fields at Deakin, RMIT, Monash and Swinburne Universities.
