Science: Solar Cars

posted Jun 15, 2011, 8:38 AM by Sue Hersey
Thanks to Ms Dority, our class participated in the Solar Car Challenge.  Materials were provided and we had to create cars that would run by a solar panel ( or in case of cloudy weather- a battery pack)  We worked in teams to figure out how to make these cars run, and then we got creative with our designs.  Needless to say, this was very challenging and we had to have a lot of persistence and work together to solve problems.  


Today we had races.    

The semifinalists were: Trouble Maker - designers Thorin and Adam, Ice Cream Fever - designers: Maddy, Tabby, and Isabella, and The Lightning Bug- designers: Sydney and Danielle.  And the champions are: Trouble Maker- designers: Thorin and Adam.  Congratulations!
