Tatnall Students Compete in Solar Sprint

Submitted by Brendan Minihan, Head of Middle School
On Thursday, April 4, four Tatnall students competed in the 25th annual statewide Junior Solar Sprint, a solar-powered model car competition at the Delaware State Fairgrounds. Junior Solar Sprint is hosted jointly by the DNREC Division of Climate, Coastal, & Energy and the Delaware Technology Student Association. Katie Payne '25 and Stella Petersen '25 formed one team, and Josh Ferrell '23 and Josh Green '23 formed a second team, spending months designing and building their own solar-powered model cars in our Innovation and Design Lab under the guidance of Mr. Josh Gates. The design process ended in a day of racing, learning, and fun! See a video of one of the races.
