SOLAR STAR CHALLENGE 2021
The Solar Star Challenge engages students to design, test, compete, and celebrate the scaling up of solar power technologies.
Students build solar models to race and showcase, write poetry, create cartoons and artwork, enter Minecraft builds, and create action plans to install pilot and commercial solar arrays at their schools.
We welcome teachers, community members, artists, celebrities, and corporations to leverage their resources and ‘star power’ to support student changemakers as they innovate and expand clean energy solutions. 2021 marks the event’s fifth year of commitment to improve educational, environmental, and economic performance at schools around the world with solar power.
