Build a Model Solar Car Educator Workshop: The Junior Solar Sprint Experience, Boxborough, MA

Join NESEA staff at the Blanchard Memorial School, Boxborough, MA on Thursday, February 17, from 4:00 - 7:00 pm for a spirited ride in solar education!

The Junior Solar Sprint workshop is designed to prepare teachers and non-formal educators in leading middle school kids through Junior Solar Sprint, a highly engaging and successful program where kids design, build and compete with model solar electric cars. Your young engineers will deepen their understanding about solar energy, math, physical science and craftsmanship. Teams can enter their cars in local design and race competitions with top winners invited to NESEA's annual northeast championship. At the workshop you will receive:

* A basic parts model solar car kit donated by Pitsco and hands-on building practice
* JSS educator resources including lesson plans and area event information
* A chance at door prizes including a model car solar panel
* Professional development points/credits for hours attending workshop

Refreshments will be provided. Please bring a bag dinner if you feel you need it.
