Solar Car Project on TES Award Shortlist


We are delighted to announce that the Solar car project from Ardingly College and Ifield Community College has been shortlisted by TES for the Science, technology and engineering teacher or team of the year category in the 2020 TES Schools Awards. The Solar car project is a global leading initiative, created and managed by students in both schools, and has successfully crossed Australia in the Bridgestone cup on two occasions, competing against top global universities.

The Solar car student project team are now looking at racing closer to home with a race planned next year from John O’Groats to Lands End, and are also focused on creating a flat packed solar car. The Solar car science project is a really good example of the pioneering and leading science work on solar energy at Ardingly College
