SOLAR STAR CHALLENGE 2023
The Solar Star Challenge engages students to design, test, compete, and celebrate the scaling up of solar power technologies.
Students take action with Solar Star Pledge campaigns, participate in Buy 1 Give 1 Solar Light workshops, design and build solar models to race and showcase, create cartoons and artwork, enter solar 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. 2023 marks the event’s seventh year of commitment to improve educational, environmental, and economic performance at schools around the world with clean energy.
