Yesterday, I had a chance to join in the “National junior solar sprint” organized by Singapore Polytechnic for secondary students in Singapore. The theme of the competition is “Sun seeker”, which is actually a small solar car race. The competition was held with purpose to create a playground for students to apply their knowledge and creation into a real thing.
Below are some pictures of the competition that I took yesterday. Unfortunately, the weather was not good in the morning. The sun was covered by lots of clouds so most cars could not run due to lack of power. These car run with direct power from solar panel, no battery is attached. There are several teams that got most of my attention not only because the performance of their car but also the design and members of the team.
