The World Solar Challenge is the self-described “ultimate challenge in sustainable energy.” Teams from all over the world design and build cars that are powered 100% from solar energy, which they then race in a competition that crosses the entire continent of Australia, from Darwin to Adelaide.
One of the youngest teams to compete in the 2009 race will be a group of 12 to 15-year-old students from the Willetton Senior High School in Perth, led by their award-winning science teacher Darren Hamley.
Adam Browning co-founded the Vote Solar Initiative in 2001 with the mission of changing government policy to make it easier and less expensive to go solar. He works with a great team, and they have a hand in most of the solar policy activities around the US.
Policy - change - happens by doing, and it's 100% people powered...we encourage students around the world to replicate this vision, and share your community's solar story with us!
