The Solar Car Challenge was established in 1993 to help motivate students in science and engineering, and to increase alternative energy awareness. The Challenge teaches high school students around the world how to build roadworthy solar cars.

The 2014 Solar Car Challenge hosted by Austin Energy is a hybrid closed-track/cross-country event, spending two days at the world famous Texas Motor Speedway, then heading out on the road to Austin. Come share the fun... meet the kids and see their solar cars.

The Solar Education Program provides a safe environment for teams to display their solar cars. On alternating years, we share the fun of the world-famous Texas Motor Speedway or drive cross-country to share their projects with millions of people.
