Clark Public Utilities invests in education through events and partnerships with school districts across Clark County. Annually, the utility hosts the Solar Car Challenge for elementary, middle and high school students. Every year, hundreds of students from local schools participate in months of engineering and design work, culminating in the construction of a working, custom-built hybrid solar and battery powered car. At the Solar Car Challenge, teams compete in an academic tournament, that includes evaluation of the student’s design and engineering process, understanding of renewable energy principles and , of course, a day-long, multi-heat race of solar cars.
