Getting ready for the Eco Symposium!

We are starting off this week already on a good note. Over the weekend, team members Brandon and Rob had the opportunity to speak on WINZ 940AM radio station about our Solar Car. We also had our car seat dropped off by Donnie Balding. Everything fits perfect. SK3 is currently in good working condition, thanks to the whole team. This week we plan on setting up for the Eco Symposium along with putting the finishing touches on SK3.


Our hard work is going to pay off this weekend at the 2014 Eco Symposium at South Plantation High School! Come on out and check out our teams hard work, along with amazing guest speakers. Saturday, April 26th 2014, from 9:30-12:30. More information in the flyer above. Hope to see you there!
