Solar on a Budget: July 10 Girls' Quest x QSDT Solar Car Races

The Girls’ Quest campers worked in pairs today to design, build and race their very own solar cars! The twist? They had only 35 solar dollars to start with, and had to buy all their materials from the Solar Shop!

Special thanks to Sunwind Solar for donating these fantastic solar car kits for our workshops! They're so easy to use and fun to race!


We don't have a ton of photos to share from this workshop because of Science Quest policies, but we encourage you to check out more photos from the day on the Science Quest website!
