Moving with solar

• The solar car.

One of the projects for students in Year 11 Integrated Science was to design and build a solar car.

Shamsia and Waheda began with the parts: wheels, gears, motors, solar panels and carefully produced a solar car. They then asked Craig for miniature electronic switches and installed two switches on their car.

The careful planning and perseverance paid off. Shamsia and Waheda succeeded in making a solar car that actually moved.

• The solar stars.
