St. Edward Students Visit Cradle

stedwardThe seventh grade recently went to the Cradle of Aviation to participate in the Junior Solar Sprint Challenge, a contest for solar car speed and design. This was a very involved process that began with several days of learning about solar panels, reviewing best practices of measurement, and analyzing how different car parts work together.

The students worked very hard, not only designing, but also constructing the body, wheels, transmission, solar panel supports, and exterior design in their groups. By using scientific principles, along with trial and error, the final versions of their cars were finally ready to race. As always, students showed a great amount of teamwork, knowledge, and perseverance. St. Edward’s walked away with some trophies, too, sweeping the design category. — St. Edward
