WHAT IS SOLAR CUP?
Solar Cup is an education program in which high school teams, sponsored by The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) and its member agencies, learn about water conservation and renewable energy by building and racing a solar powered boat during a seven-month period.
The teams compete against each other in both sprint and endurance races at Lake Skinner, located in Temecula. As part of the program, the teams also research and complete various technical reports and create a water-related public service announcement. The culminating Solar Cup races will take place May 18-20, 2018.
WHY SOLAR CUP?
Solar Cup is an opportunity for students to gain understanding in the following areas:
Promote stewardship of natural resources, including water conservation
Increase understanding of water supply and water quality challenges
Promote use of renewable energy, through hands-on application of math, science and engineering
Increase awareness about water industry careers
