Solar Car Challenge



This year has been a really successful year for our Solar Car Team!

It is such a privilege to be a part of the Solar Car Team.  We have been working diligently and concisely in order to get our car ready for the upcoming race at the end of this year.  My team, consisting of Tina Nguyen, Uyen Nguyen, Yih Chyng Szeto and me have gained a handful of skills and knowledge considering the utilisation of various tools and machinery.  We can now confidently and proudly say that we are experts in the field!

We have managed to accomplish our mission.  Our car has been successfully modified, precisely designed and thoroughly built.  We are now ready to race against the other  teams.

The Solar Car Challenge program provides us with a lot of opportunities to enhance our leadership, self-management and communication skills.  In order to work cooperatively as a team, every team member has to demonstrate their self-management to the best of his/her ability.  As a leader, I always appreciate my team members’ creativity. We have worked efficiently to come up with the most desirable and creative Solar Car model even though we have also come across some minor difficulties along the way. Besides the challenges and difficulties in the constructing process, we have also had a lot of fun and excitement working together!

On behalf of my team, I would like to say, “Thank you” to Mr Marbeck for his relentless assistance and helping!
