, the DeKalb County Student Engineering Team was preparing to make history as the first solar car racing team made up entirely of high schoolers form Georgia. With their car Endeavour in tow, the team traveled to Texas for the Winston Solar Challenge, held from July 14 to 19.
Now, the race is over, the team has an award and they want to show Endeavour to the community.
The team, which was the sole representative from Georgia and the entire Southeast in the challenge, won the Guntis Terauds award. This award is given to a team that shows courage in the face of engineering issues.
They will show off Endeavour at a few different locations this Saturday, July 28.
First, the car will be on display at from 10 to 10:30 a.m. From there, it will drive up Buford Highway (under police escort) to the Buford Highway Flea Market for a display from 11 a.m. to noon. Then, it will proceed to Honeysuckle Park in Doraville and stop at the Fleming Sports Arena for a party from noon to 1 p.m. The party will include food, fun, a demonstration of the car and a raffle with prizes like a free iPad and free Chik-Fil-A for a year.
