The Staten Island Solar Car Team, is a nonprofit organization primarily composed of high-school students in Staten Island. This past summer, we competed at the annual Solar Car Challenge against accomplished high school teams from across the country, and placed fourth overall. We were extremely happy with the results, but we’re reaching for more this year. Unfortunately, building a car is very costly. Plans for our new Solar car are already underway, and with help from companies like you, we will be finished in time to compete at the cross country solar car challenge come next summer.
Not only will you be supporting students from our team, but other teams as well, as we’re currently in the process of helping highschools across the city set up their own teams. The more resources we have access to while this is happening, the more students we can get involved in the fascinating field of solar power. You will also have opportunities to check in on the car and how it’s progressing throughout the year.
