About the Team
We are an all-girls high school solar car team from Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart in Miami, Florida. Our mentors include Mr. Joyce, Mr. Crockwell, Mr. Cassel, Mrs. Perez, and Ms. St. Louis. Our team is also led by Sabine Meurs '20, Nina Gallinar '20, and Caro Gomez Rivas-Vazquez '20. Since 2016, we have converted a gas-powered go-kart into a solar-powered car, and this year we plan to build one from scratch. In our first competition, we placed first in the endurance race, second in presentation and fourth in the sprint. In our second year of competing in the Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) Sunchase Challenge, we placed third in endurance, second in presentation and second in the relay. As a result of all our hard work, in only our second year of competing at the FGCU SunChase Challenge, we won overall champion, which also made us the first all-girls team to win! In the future, we're looking forward to competing at the FGCU SunChase Challenge and also plan on competing in the Texas Motor Speedway Solar Car Challenge.
