Centered on engineering a solar electric model car, the JSS nurtures the innate curiosity of youth and provides an open forum for 5th - 8th grade students to utilize science & math in a way that will give real life meaning to lessons learned in the classroom. 

This multi-dimensional, hands-on program gives the students a glimpse of what to expect when doing "real" engineering. Students will earn awards in several categories and for the best overall vehicle as judged by the Eastern Electric Vehicle Club.
