Mini Solar Vehicle Competition – Online

Submissions are due online by 5 November via teacher registration.

Further details and competition criteria will be provided during March.

Up to 2,000 mini solar vehicle kits will be available at the heavily subsidised cost of $5 (instead of $30) per kit (including delivery).

Kits can be re-used!

From the many available parts, construct your own mini Solar Vehicle (SV), try varied configurations and attempt to be the fastest over a 10m track.

You will be required to submit your mini SV’s time and a video of the run (further details will be available later) – via your registered teacher.
