Junior Solar Sprints

Students learn best by “doing”.  Junior Solar Sprints (JSS) engages students to design, build and race solar-powered model cars with materials (including solar panels), provided by HART, free of charge. 

After months of building, testing and experimentation, students compete for the fastest, most-innovative and best-engineered vehicles. The winners from these division races go on to compete against the best-of-the best at an Inter-County final competition.

Interactive presentations help students as they design and build their race cars: 

  • Drive it Green
  • Solar Power
  • Introduction to Gears & Gear Ratios
  • Aerodynamics
  • Designing & Building Your Model Car
  • Building a Functional Model Car
