  • In 1990 a solar-powered aircraft flew across the United States using no fuel
  • If only 4% of the world's deserts were covered in solar cells, they could supply all of the world's electricity!

Are you curious and interested to find out more about this sustainable, green power? Investigate how we can use solar energy to solve a problem, power up electronics, and start a car?  Up for a design engineering challenge to prototype and build your own solar car and win a car race!
