Solar EV Charging Station Built By High School Students For Samsung Solve For Tomorrow Competition

A working solar electric vehicle charging station was recently built by a team of students at Mission Valley ROP/James Logan High School for entry into the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition in STEM. As voting in the competition is performed via social media, it seems worth giving the team a plug here (hardy har har…).

Interestingly, the school that built the electric vehicle (EV) charger is actually located only a few miles away from the Tesla Motors factory in Fremont, California. Perhaps some of the students are angling for a job with the company?

As noted above, the team is now one of only 15 finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow Competition, so those looking to help the team out with a vote have a good chance of actually making a difference. (The voting is US only.)
