Well  we are on our way. Saturday STEP members came together to start working the RC car and Solar Charging Station. Due to a cloudy day we could not test our panel. However, the students came up with two ideas for building the station. Students used the internet to investigate solar panels and angle of insolation. This would be a great activity for Earth Science classes. At our next meeting we will be building our stations and testing to see which is best to use. RC car students tested the vechile and started to formulate plans for improving its performance. It was a great day and we really got a great deal of work done.
