Powered by the Son!
At the 2017 Greater Cincinnati Area High Tech event, the Rangers will be learning about solar power. Solar power is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), indirectly using concentrated solar power, or a combination. Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic cells convert light into an electric current using the photovoltaic effect.
During this event, we will be building a solar powered car using the Solar Speedy Car kit, and then racing our cars in the Solar Derby. We will use Ranger Derby car tracks to race the solar cars. Because this is an indoor event, we will be using the simulated solar power of a halogen spotlight/flashlight to power the cars.
After the initial time of instruction, the boys will be given the opportunity to assemble their Solar Speedy Car. After each boy has assembled their solar car, the Solar Derby competition will begin! Trophies will be awarded to the top finishers in the racing events. It is important that you and your boys carefully read the attached Fact Sheets.
We hope this will be a great time of fun and learning for your Royal Rangers and we look forward to seeing you there!

Solar Car Kit Details
Solar Speedy Car:
The Soar Speedy Car is a dual powered (solar/battery) racing car, perfect for a solar derby. How does it work? The Solar Panel generates power (instantaneously), which is then used to directly power a DC low voltage motor.
How long does it take to get setup? Each kit can be assembled within 15-30 minutes.
How fast do they go? The kits are designed to work under direct sunlight / party cloudy conditions or simulated sunlight using a halogen spotlight/flashlight. You will be happy with the speed of these solar car kits.
Solar Car Features:
Maximum Speed over 3 M/S (Meters/Second)
Can climb 30 degree uphill
Easy to build and play
1 AA battery
Solar Car Specifications:
Items YOU Need to Bring with YOU (will NOT be supplied at the event):
A halogen spotlight/flashlight. I’ve tried using both LED and incandescent flashlights and neither were able to power the solar car. The halogen spotlight worked the best.
