SES Kids Hang Tough at Solar Regatta

e-Connections Post School of Engineering and Sciences

A team of juniors from the School of Engineering and Sciences experienced challenges yet still managed to win an award for the design of its solar-powered boat at the inaugural Northern California Solar Regatta hosted by SMUD and held at Rancho Seco Park. In four days, students of the Class of 2013 built a boat that had an onboard-computer system with advanced electronics, light aluminum framing and a homemade chain-driven outboard motor. Wind, weeds and crossed wires hampered the team’s efforts but not their spirits. Congratulations SES Class of 2013!
