Mechanical Drawing of Solar Car Model
Students will be working in groups and they will need to make a thumbnail sketch of the solar car body. They will need to draw a top, side and end view locating the cells and the motor in the car. Students will choose what they want to use to build the prototype and then they are responsible for bringing in the materials to build with. The teacher will be supplying motor, cells, wires, gears and axels.
Students must remember that they will be given only two solar cells to power the cars. They must keep in mind that the car must be light weight and aerodynamic for it to run.
