Racing the Sun

More than 100 students from 12 schools take part in a annual solar-powered go-kart race sponsored by the University of Arizona's Tech Parks Arizona.

For six years, high school students from across the state have designed, built and raced solar powered go-karts in a competition sponsored by the University of Arizona’s Tech Parks Arizona. On a windy day in late April, more than 100 students from 12 schools took to a track south of Tucson to test their teamwork and problem solving.
