Ardingly Ifield Solar Car Project

The STEM project collaboration between ICC and Ardingly College is going strength to strength.  Every Saturday ICC students and staff volunteer their time and travel to Ardingly College where they assist in designing and building sustainable solar panel car. 

After successfully taking part in the Albi Race in France and the Bridgestone challenge travelling across Australia using  only solar panel energy, their goal now is build a solar flat pack car to ship to Kenya with the hope that the solar energy generator will supply an off the grid power supply to remote areas. 

Watch this space! Later on in the year the team are planning to travel by Solar Car from John O'Groats to Brighton.
