2018 Synergy Schools Solar Challenge

Get your students involved in a hands-on solar energy initiative...

Developed in partnership with the Science Teachers Association of WA (STAWA), we are pleased to announce that Synergy Schools Solar Challenge is back again for 2018!

Open to years 6 and 8 within the WA metro area, schools have the chance to take part in a free resourced, hands on energy initiative that gives students the opportunity to build their own solar powered cars - before they put their knowledge to the test in a fun race against schools all over Perth and Bunbury. 

It's fun, it's engaging - and it's fully resourced
