SMIST Summer Programs

Duanesburg YMCA

This one-day program challenges students to create the fastest, safest, most interesting, and best crafted solar vehicle possible. Students will design, build and race solar powered cars using hands-on engineering skills, principles of science and math, develop teamwork and problem-solving skills. All participants will use a standardized solar cell and motor. Other construction materials will also be supplied. With the exception of few vehicle specifications that must be met, unlimited ingenuity and inventiveness can be used in vehicle construction. At the end of the day, students will race their vehicles to determine who has built the fastest and safest vehicle by zooming down a track with an egg as a passenger. Parents are welcome to watch the final races at the end of the day.
