My students need the Solar Designer Car Kit and accessorizes to design, modify and experiment with vehicles using sustainable means of energy. They will explore the mechanics of solar panels as they test their designs.
Hello Potential Donors, thank you for your interest in my project proposal! I am a public school teacher from South Florida. I am always looking for ways to infuse STEM projects into the curriculum. Many go beyond what I am capable of financing myself. I appreciate any assistance you can provide in contributing to inspiring experiences for my students.
My students are always eager to learn and explore!
They get excited about learning when presented with unconventional resources that challenge them to think outside the box. They love to question, discuss ideas, and exchange their points of view.
My students need innovative STEM materials to spark their interest, motivate them to learn and challenge their thinking.
Ray Catcher Sprint Deluxe Solar Vehicle kits and accessories will challenge my students to create (as the intent is to eventually modify the kits using recyclable materials) solar-powered cars using a solar panel and motor. In the process, students will investigate the concepts of the engineering process, solar energy, mechanics of solar panels, effectiveness of their designs and the factors affecting their cars' optimal performance. Items requested in this project proposal will enable my students to experiment with different variables to learn which elements are crucial to an effective car design. Thank you to any potential donors for providing my students with hands-on projects encouraging higher order thinking and problem solving!
