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.
