Explanation of how the solar sprint car works & general information:

The car is powered by the solar panel which powers the motor. The motor turns gears that operate one set of wheels. The chassis seen in the images is made using wood but as further refinements are made the chassis will instead be a 3D print.

Materials used (In both prototype and final):

  • Solar car kit (gears, wheels, eyelets, spacer, etc.)
  • Solar panel
  • Motor
  • Wooden sheet
  • Cardboard sheet
  • 3D printer filament
