Solar cars and great students

This morning I met the Willetton Secondary High School team from Perth arriving in their solar car, Solar Flair, from Darwin. The car had travelled 906 kilometres under solar power. It was driven by 4 of the adults travelling with a group of twenty four 12 to 15 year old gifted and talented students. Each student had played a part in preparing the car for the Challenge and each of them had a role to play on the trip from Darwin to Adelaide to keep a record of the journey. One 13 year old boy told me he had worked on the electrics but he was really a computer geek! I heard that along the way he had shown the Michigan State University team how to download some information they were wanting. Great hope for our solar future.
