Solar MOTO

Solar MOTO involves the solar car project and renewable resource project. The solar car project is based on the technology outcomes, science forces outcomes and mathematics statistics outcomes. The students use their science knowledge and scientific process and maths statistical data collection and presentation, to design and create a solar powered toy car that can compete in a race.
The renewable resource project is based on technology outcomes, science energy and resources outcomes and mathematics percentages, fractions and decimals outcomes. Students are presented with a driving question and use their science, mathematics and technology knowledge to identify a community target group and design a solution to be presented to a panel in a “shark tank” style presentation. Students use design thinking to come up with a persuasive presentation of their solution.
