Racing with the sun

Sixth graders at St. Louise School in Bellevue had a fast and furious competition this week with their teams of individually built solar-powered cars. With teacher Jeff Glaser at the helm, the students used K’NEX building components and learned how to increase the speed of their cars through different configurations. Their process highlighted the scientific method where the students held trials, used charts and graphs, and created lab write-ups of their findings.
