This year’s Solar Car Challenge rolled in full of surprises for Harmony teams participating. This year three campuses built Solar Cars, and took them up to Fort Worth to participate in the 785 mile race from the world-famous Texas Motor Speedway to Minneapolis, Minnesota. HSA-Brownsville did not complete the race, but had the opportunity to travel to Fort Worth to learn more about what they can do to prepare more efficiently for next year’s race. The team will now practice perfecting their car with materials permitted, after finding out that using Electrical Metallic Tubing will get them disqualified. HSA-San Antonio completed the race, and finished in 7th place. This team worked endlessly until the very end, preparing their car and organizing fundraisers to cover travel costs. Team Sol Invictus from HSA-El Paso did not complete the race due to some technical difficulties, but came back with many new ideas for the next car. The Solar Car Challenge welcomes teams from all around the country, and helps students learn about effective ways to help the environment using engineering and science. We are very proud of the hard work and dedication all of our students demonstrated during this year-long journey. We are especially thankful for the support we receive from the community, we couldn’t do it without you. For more information regarding The Solar Car Challenge click here.
