Locke Hill Elementary NISD Solar Car Race Team Tshirts

Posted by on Jun 3, 2011 in Blog, Blogroll | No Comments

We were more than happy to design t-shirts for the kids at Locke Hill Elementary school for their annual NISD Solar Car Race. The kids design and race their own solar cars and then 50 elementary school teams – who spent weeks building miniature solar-powered cars – competed at the CPS Energy 14th Annual Texas Solar Car Races.

The children use recycled materials to build the cars, often using old CDs for the wheels.

Sponsored by CPS Energy and Northside ISD, the Texas Solar Car Races are the brainchild of NISD Trustee Bobby Blount, who founded the event to give students hands-on lessons in teamwork, renewable energy, problem-solving, and science and engineering.
