Walnut Solar Car Project

The solar car project has become even more interesting than I thought it would be. When I started getting the project rolling last summer, I had no idea what I was actually getting into. It began as a simple curiosity about what our current advisor, William, did every summer – go to the solar car race. When I inquired as to what goes into the formation of a solar car team, I was met with such enthusiasm that I couldn’t help but get interested. When the people I spoke to also took an interest in the project, it just came together almost on its own. Some additional motivating factors – the fact that this year’s race ends in Pasadena, at JPL in fact (even better), which is so nearby; the fact that we are the only team from California; and the need for CAS (community service) hours for IB requirements.

    Hey Eliot Lee.
    It seems that since you left Walnut High School, people have taken after you. I am now the co-president of the current 2008-2009 Walnut Solar Car club on campus. If it is possible, could you send me any info that you still have on the club because we are trying to get it approved by our new principle.
