Tech for Teachers Award
The Solar/STEM solar car/boat was named a 4 star winner in this category. The STEM solar resource is used to teach engineering skills in application of design, maths, physics in an enjoyable way. It motivates and engages students to gain self-confidence and problem solving skills while building the solar car or boat. Students are given the opportunity to design components to modify positively to affect performance e.g. travel in a straight direction, over bumps and hills, and increase speed.
