STELR solar cars are designed to be used in conjunction with the STELR Renewable Energy module for students to apply their knowledge of solar energy and electric circuits.
Focusing on technology and engineering, these kits are ideal for STEM classes. They are also great for math as the gear boxes use ratios.
Schools are encouraged to use the solar car kits to run an in-school solar car challenge at the end of the unit, where students test their designs.
