To explore the application of renewable
energy such as solar energy.
To use the renewable solar energy to
build model cars.
To build save-energy car.
Build solar car which is lighter because it
can reduce drag and air resistance.
Solar car shape is aerodynamic.
Transmission system for solar car is the
To build a model solar car that has the efficiency of
solar energy resources in optimal condition.
To introduce the students about the science and
To apply mechanical and electronic skill in science.
To investigate the relationship between speed ,
force and load.
To introduce students about the alternative energy
To reduce the usage of non-renewable energy.
This car uses the solar cell or photovoltaic
Solar cell changes the solar energy to electric
The solar panel will undergo chemical
reactions and change the sunlight to electron.
The electron will rotate the motor and the
wheels so the car will move.
The circuit that are formed are
the combination of a series
Series circuit add power to the
car while parallel circuit
provide optimum energy for
the car to move.
Main material – Board
To make the body.
Light and easy to shape.
Tyre – Span
Make the car move faster.
Time 11.00 a.m 12.00 p.m 1.00 p.m
Low Moderate High
Speed 1.25 m/s 1.28 m/s 1.32 m/s
The speed of the car depends on the
material used and the brightness of
The brighter the sunlight , the faster the
car will move.
The light the material used , the faster
the car will move.
