Junior Solar Sprint 2013

Dartmouth engineering students and faculty are once again helping to run the Upper Valley Junior Solar Sprint (JSS) competition. This year will feature six local schools with over 120 students participating and over 70 competing cars!
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.
Check out the fun they had in 2012!
