About the Solar Car Challenge
The Solar Car Challenge is the top project-based STEM Initiative helping motivate students in Science, Engineering, and Alternative Energy. The SCC Education Program developed in 1993 as a high school extra-curricular program, and later evolved into the Solar Car Challenge Foundation.

The Solar Car Challenge Education Program teaches high school students how to plan, design, engineer, build, and race roadworthy solar cars. This is accomplished through six national teaching workshops, on-site visits, curriculum materials, and summer camps.

As of 2017, one hundred eighty-one high school in thirty-six states, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, and the Bahamas take part in some phase of the Solar Car Challenge Education program. Top teachers from across the country have put their minds together to make the Solar Car Challenge one of the most engaging and motivating high school science programs in existence today.

The end product of each 15-month education cycle is the Solar Car Challenge: a closed-track event at the world famous Texas Motor Speedway, or a cross country event designed to give students an opportunity to show the country the product of their efforts.

The Solar Car Challenge is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) non-profit education foundation.
