Participating in Junior Solar Sprint provides a hands-on opportunity for students to apply Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) concepts, creativity, and problemsolving skills as they design, construct and race solar-powered cars. Participants use their imagination ad ingenuity to construct vehicles powered by a standardized solar cell and motor and compete against their peers.
