For the past few weeks Mr. Dayton and his 6th and 7th period classes have been building, designing, and racing solar powered cars. The classes seemed to enjoy building their own cars and getting to race, especially those taking home wins!
Students used kits that contained small pocket sized solar panels, thin wooden blocks, plastic tires, motors, and small plastic gears to build their cars. Students cut, sanded, painted and assembled their own cars. After they were built, students tested their cars and made any final changes to their designs.
