Junior Solar Sprints program
The Junior Solar Sprints program is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) competition that engages students to design, build and race solar-powered model cars. The event is sponsored by PSEG and organized by OASIS (Organizing Action on Sustainability in Schools), a local non-profit school consortium.
After months of building, testing and experimentation, students compete in five divisional races for the fastest, most-innovative and best-engineered vehicles. The winners from these division races go on to compete against the best of the best at our Inter-County Final.
Cedar Hill prep is proud to announce that the eight grade students had a chance to participate for the first time at the annual Solar Jam competition in Princeton on May 14th, 2016.
Cedar Hill Prep School won all three prizes in their division races at Princeton.
1st Prize – Elaine Chen, Megha Thomas and Simone Thompson
2nd Prize – Ashna Kelkar, Sarah Abraham and Kathryn Litkowski
3rd Prize – Aarthi Venkata, Chahat Mittal, Shreya Krishna and Shwetha Rajagopalan
Many thanks to the parents and Mrs. Belkhayat, the Science Teacher for all the help and support during this project.
The First Place winners will be participating in the Regional Inter County Final on Monday, May 23rd at Ridgedale Middle School, Florham Park, NJ.
