About the Solar Car Challenge
The Solar Car Challenge originated in 1993 as the "Winston Solar Challeng", and has been recognized by "Technology & Learning" as one of the top ten education programs in America. The program teaches high school students how to build roadworthy solar cars, and then provides a safe environment to race.
The program's popularity has since grown rapidly and become its own non-profit entity. More than 65 schools in 20 states now take part in the Solar Car Challenge. Top teachers from across the country have put their minds together to make the Solar Car Challenge one of the most engaging and motivating high school science programs in existence today.
The Solar Car Challenge is designed to motivate students in science, engineering, and alternative energy. Students learn how to design, engineer, build, and race roadworthy solar cars. Workshops, curriculum materials, and on-site visits help support the teams. The end product of each education cycle is the Solar Car Challenge: a closed-track event at the world famous Texas Motor Speedway, or a cross country event (in alternate years) designed to give students an opportunity to show the country the product of their efforts.
The Solar Car Challenge is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit education foundation.
