New Look

July 1st  SK III got a new look in preparation for the big day. We have added pearlescent white vinyl on along with some killer panels including three 135W, two 120W, six 100W panels. We are working diligently from sun up to sun down to complete our time line to finish Sunday! We had the pleasure of Western High School Solar Cats coming to visit our Engineering Tech room and meeting our team!

As we are placing the final touches on the car such as wiring cells and finishing the canopy,we have had the honor of working alongside gifted mentors who are professionals in their respective fields. This week we have had lots of collaboration with  mentors such as E Marine, Todd's Canopies, and Car Wrap Solutions. A special thanks to Capt. Hunt, Janna Hunt and Janet Sekosan for being with us the whole way, sacrificing a ridiculous amount of time and money to the Solar Knights, we cant thank them enough!

Catching Up

Over the past couple months we have had great progress. The official race team has been decided. We have almost completely recreated our solar car including brakes, roll cage, seating, canopy, battery boxes, ventilation, completely redid all of our low voltage systems, new better more efficient solar panels, as well as doing lots of body work to our car and the car is awaiting a new vinyl wrap. We are preparing for the big race in about 3 weeks!
