Long Beach has a Solar Grand Prix for middle and high school students. Teams of 4 students design and build their own solar-powered model car and race it.
The contest is on April 21, 2012 in El Dorado Park, but teams need to sign up by December 16.
Kits are given to each team. I have all of the contest information and I will post it in the gee! file section.
Teams must be comprised of 4 students and a teacher/parent coach - all of whom must reside in Long Beach. The teams must be all middle school students or all high school students. There are only 100 team spots open.
A mandatory orientation will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2012. Contact Rachel Powers for more information: [address removed]
Here is some info on last year's race: http://www.longbeach.gov/district5/solargrandprix.asp
If your child would like to enter, but you're looking for team members, please let me know. I can post on gee! to get one or more teams going. Thanks!
