Help inspire future engineers!
Join us as middle school students from across Boston compete in the annual Junior Solar Sprint! Over 50 student teams have designed and built solar cars this spring, and will compete to find the best designed and fastest car. Racing begins at 11 am and continues till the Award Ceremony at 1:45 pm.
