You can make a solar car and
use it for a technology project or science project.
As a technology/ engineering
project your model car will be evaluated based on design
features and performance.
As a science project, you must use your
solar car to study one factor such as the angle of solar panel or the
angle of sunlight to see how do they affect the performance (speed) of
the car. More advanced students may make larger solar car models with 2
or more solar panels.
Materials that include solar panel,
small DC motor and a simple car can be purchased separately or as a kit.
This project guide contains the assembly instructions as well as steps
of doing a science project using the solar car model you make.
