Powered by the sun: 6th grade solar car race

Nicole Arca
Right before the Trailblazers race into the long weekend, the 6th grade class took their solar cars to the Lower Campus in our annual Solar Car Races! Read on to see the list of winning teams.

The annual 6th Grade Solar Car Race was held this afternoon, Friday, May 26th, on the Lower School Basketball Courts, making for an adrenaline-filled day before the long weekend.

Students in the 6th grade have been working diligently on designing, testing, re-designing, and perfecting their solar cars within the classroom for the past five weeks. This project is the culmination of a study unit on renewable energy. It was a great afternoon with fast cars and enthusiastic students!

First Place: The Solar Sanics - Kyler Rumack, Aeson Tripodis & Bodhi Silberling
Second Place: Sunny Bunnies - Jaida Sione-Godinet, Avery Horwitz & Samantha Bolotsky
Third Place: Radiant Beach Boys - JT Nichols, Jess Tarnol, Thanos Spiropoulos, Kory Jordan
Third Place: 4 Seconds of Sun - Kayla Okui, Isabella Marzan, Batul Saifee & Annabelle Chow

Congratulations to our winners and the entire 6th grade class for their hard work and dedication to this tradition!
