This event is open to all middle schools, high schools, and colleges in California. Participation promotes teamwork, competition and discovery at SMUD's Rancho Seco Recreational Area.
The Sacramento Municipal Utility District is proud to sponsor this fun and educational event. SMUD will loan the solar panels and will help organize the teams. Students can either retrofit existing boats or build their own design from scratch. The boats will be judged for speed, distance, maneuverability and more.
