Middle School Solar Car Competition Team
Using Creativity, Engineering and Science Skills to Build a Winning Solar Car
Under the direction of Middle School teachers, Mrs. Lisa Groves and Mr. Jim Hoy, OLVCS Middle school students, designed and build model solar cars.
Basic materials were provided by KidTech, a State College-based nonprofit charitable organization. Students used other materials that they brought from home to complete their designs.
On May 25, 2017, the students competed in the Great Solar/Hybrid Engineering Festival. The competition included over 100 students from seven area schools.
The students from OLVCS won a variety of awards for their original engineering designs. The table shows a list of these awards.
