Solar Buggies is a practical and teamwork-led skills building workshop to understand more about solar energy. David Ault and Simon Carter will give participants an insight into the various applications for solar power, including the science and manufacture involved in solar panels and solar cells.

After an initial presentation, small groups work together to build and test their own solar-powered model vehicle on our purpose built race strip.
