Solar Car Workdays 2017

The Faculty of Engineering Technology runs a Model Solar Car workday on alternating Saturdays and Sundays from 8.30am to 4.30pm.

Current parents are more than welcome to drop in to see whats happening and we would welcome offers of assitance from parents who believe they may have skills to contribute.

As part of the faculty's approach to education, we welcome visitors from other schools and often have non Box Hill High School students attending our workdays. Staff are more than happy to assist any school aiming to compete in either model solar cars or model solar boats.

If you are interested in getting assistance in setting up solar car or boat teams, or simply want to visit, please send us a message and we will be in touch to confirm dates and times.

The Melbourne Museum Pursuit Event for 2017 will likely be held early in September outside Melbourne Museum, during school hours.

The Victorian State Event dates for 2017 are tentatively Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd of October. The latest information is available from their website.

The Australian International Model Solar Vehicle Challenge venue is yet to be announced.
