Unversity Solar Car Challenge Time Again

A friend sent this over today, and I thought it was interesting to blog on, most of the commentary below is his reprinted. Thanks Chris. Also check out a blog we did a while back on the World Solar Challenge in Australia.

Beginning on July 16th, high school students from the US, Puerto Rico and India will travel to Texas Motor Speedway to compete in the 11th annual Dell-Winston School Solar Car Challenge, a race tasking students to design, build and race their own solar powered cars. This year, the Sundancer Solar Race Team, from Houston, Miss., will attempt to win the Solar Car Challenge for the sixth year in a row. You can track their progress this year, at the Sundancer Blog, where the team will be uploading photos and providing written updates both as they prepare for the event and during the actual race.

The Sundancer Solar Car is powered by photovoltaic solar cells manufactured by SCHOTT, one of the world’s leading providers of innovative solar energy products.

Check out the links below to learn more about the Dell-Winston School Solar Car Challenge and the Sundancer Team in particular.

    While it is true Houston won their division last year at the Dell-Winston Solar Challenge, they did not win the overall title. They were beat by a school from Minnesota who raced in the lower cost "classic" division. The race is scored on total miles driven.John

    John – the MN team is not necessarily lower cost, just different technology (motor, battery, etc.). The Houston team has won their division for 5 straight years, and according to the race results at winstonsolar.org/challenge seem to be in a good position to win not only their division, but the overall title this year. Pretty impressive for a group of kids from rural Mississippi.

    http://www.women1.org/ a woman, or the feminine in men and women, seeks to share deep awareness of the world in a sacralized communion. the presence of soft candle light, wild flowers, and the rituals of dressing for the occasion are simply metaphors acknowledged and “lived out” in honor of the moment. in honor of life. in honor of shared awareness of the infinite in a moment.
