Build your own solarboat and participate in the Young Solar Challenge!

"This project combined all aspects of my education up to now!

"It's an amazing experience!"

Will your team build the fastest solar boat?


Building a professional solar boat with your team and participating to an exiting race: it’s possible with the Young Solar Challenge! Secondary schools and unions can now participate to this unique event.

All participating teams receive a building- and lesson kit for a professional solar boat. A couple of weeks later the teams will race in their own build solar boat.  The Young Solar Challenge includes everything to make the younger people more excited about technique. Because of a combination of theory, practice and competition younger people learn a lot about Sustainable technology. In a fun and playful way.

A team consists of young people who are enthusiastic about this technical challenge. They are accompanied by the organization with junior classes and an instructional film that helps build the body of the solar boat.

Who will be able to call themselves "Dutch Champion Young Solar Challenge" after 3 matches?
