Title: Mini Solar Challenge
Fun, Action and environmental education in one package is the Mini Solar Challenge, a project initiated in Switzerland. Teams with each two youth compete against each other in a solar mobile mini car race. The racing distance is 10 meters, and of course every second counts. Half a year before the race starts, participants receive solar cells and a small motor. The young people than have to think about, how to design and put together the chassis. The race takes place every year, and is a pre-event to the SUN21, a regional solar event with an international congress.
