JSS Exhibit at Altwheels

Post by shawn » Fri Jun 01, 2007 11:19 am

I am interested in trying to get Junior Solar Sprint teams to exhibit their cars at Altwheels, September 28 and 29 in Boston, and every year. I imagine an exhibition race if the weather is good, with alumni invited to bring cars from years past.
This year I will start by inviting teams from the Cape Cod area race tomorrow. I will create a handout explaining Altwheels and point to this topic or to a signup page so that we can get an idea of how many teams might participate.

Altwheels organizers are thinking about offering a punch-card for visitors, especially students, to carry around the exhibits, getting marks for learning about different alternatives.

At the end of their journey, students could receive a certificate showing what they studied.
