Are you interested in Junior Solar Sprint (JSS)?  

Upper elementary and middle school students (grades 3-8) are invited to design, build, and race Junior Solar Sprint (JSS) cars. The small model cars - powered entirely by solar energy and guided by wires - are built by teams of 2-4 students with guidance from teachers. Each team will be judged on design, innovation, and race time performance. Vehicle races will take place on the JSS track until winning teams for each division are determined.

Are you interested in the Solar Energy Cook-off (SCO)?

The Solar Energy Cook-off (SCO) is a solar cooker competition for students in grades 3-12. Students working in teams of two to six students, design and build solar cookers that are demonstrated to a panel of judges. At the Solar Energy Cook-off (SCO), teams demonstrate the performance of their solar cookers by creating an original dish of food for the competition. Awards are given in each student division for the Best Cooker Design and Top Solar Culinary Chefs.
