1/14/2019: Mapping the Weeks Until Race Day

Gulliver will be coming on Wednesday (1/16) because they hope to start a solar go-kart team (this year)

  • share general advice/past experience

Measuring the voltage of solar panels

Cleaned the kart

  • Will the water effect the solar panels?

  • Not really

900 watts- tipping point

  • 150-watt panel (bendable panels)

  • Stack panels? fold?

  • How will it change the car’s appearance?

  • Where would we stack them during the race?

How could you change the configuration of the car?

If we were to rethink the way we carry our panels and not worry about light collecting

Panels cannot touch the ground

COME UP WITH IDEAS!!!!!!!


Max length 12 ft long and 6 ft wide/Only during racing?
