At our annual meeting, the advisers of CT Electrathon Challenge elected to expand the program by adding a solar class and to open the program to college students. We hope to expose more students to the potential of solar energy as an alternative energy source and develop a higher learning curve with the addition of college programs.

Beginning with the spring event, solar vehicles will have the opportunity to showcase their unique designs.  The solar vehicles will have to conform to Electrathon America rules and use solar panels that are resistant to impact or be protected in some manner.  Photos will have to be submitted at least two weeks prior to the event so that any safety issues can be addressed early.

There are several schools that are in the process of developing solar vehicles and we welcome their efforts and look forward to their participation.
