Student teams from HSA-El Paso, HSA-Brownsville, and HSA-San Antonio are all currently in Fort Worth to compete in this year’s Solar Car Challenge. The Solar Car Challenge hosted by Earth Day Texas is a competition that began in 1993, that pushes students to learn about energy efficiency and engineering. Teams are required to design, and build a solar car that can be driven from Fort Worth, TX to Minneapolis, MN. This is the second solar car that El Paso students have built, but the first for Brownsville and San Antonio students. This year El Paso team received support from MIT students, and they were able to make significant improvements to their solar car design with their help. Students along with their instructors have worked endless hours hoping to complete this rigorous race. During the week of the Solar Car Challenge, team participants and instructors will go through media day, and will also have to attend trainings on how to successfully complete the race, and how to keep safe out in the road. We wish them the best of luck during this road trip. Their hardwork and dedication does not go unnoticed. Harmony would also like to acknowledge the help from local sponsors who help our students reach their full potential, it would not be possible without their support.
