The Teachers' Workshop was a great success, with Michael from Kite Magic showing us how much fun the Mini EV Prize is! The cars were super-easy to assemble, and they surprised everyone with their speed.
For those who could not attend the workshop or those that need a refresher we have uploaded a series of short film clips by Michael from Kite Magic on how to construct your Mini-EV Solar Car. Click on the button below to access the videos.
Mini EV Prize Solar Sprint Race
Students built solar-powered cars and compete in the 20m Mini Sprint on a straight track.

While the cars are simple in design, they need to be accurate and fast. This race will provide students with an insight to the main Pursuit race plus plenty of room for fun and STEM Learning.
