The Northeast Sustainable Energy Association proudly presents this event.
The Electric Vehicle Association of Greater Washington D.C., in collaboration with the Potomac Regional Solar Energy Association, are hosting a free model solar car workshop on Wednesday, October 21 from 4:00 - 7:00 pm. This educator workshop is designed to prepare teachers and non-formal educators in leading middle school kids through Junior Solar Sprint, a highly engaging and successful program where kids design, build and compete with model solar electric cars. Your young engineers will deepen their understanding about solar energy, math, physical science and craftsmanship. Teams can enter their cars in local design and race competitions with top winners invited to the annual Northeast Championship coordinated by the Northeast Sustainable Energy Association (NESEA).
At the workshop you will receive:
- A basic parts model solar car kit and hands-on building practice
- JSS educator resources including lesson plans and area event information
- A chance at door prizes including a model car solar panel
- Professional development points/credits for hours attending workshop
