Junior Solar Sprint 2012

Thursday, May 31, 2012, 9:00am–1:30pm

CCBA, Witherell Recreation Center, 1 Taylor Street, Lebanon, NH

Junior Solar Sprint (JSS) is a design engineering challenge where students in 5th through 8th grade design and create model solar electric race cars. Youth can then enter competitions and be judged on the merits of the model solar electric cars.

Through JSS, students develop teamwork and problem solving abilities, investigate environmental issues, gain hands-on engineering skills, and use principals of science and math to get the fastest, most interesting, and best crafted vehicle possible.

Dartmouth engineering students will join members of Tau Beta Pi to run this year's JSS race. Sponsors include: IEEE, ASME, Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP), Hypertherm, and EBAs.

Check out the fun they had in 2010!
