The North Florida Energy Whiz Expo is held every April at the Gainesville Raceway, home of the Gator Nationals. Elementary, middle, and high school students test and improve uniquely designed solar cars, solar cookers, and energy-efficient critter condos. Those interested may take their designs to state level competition at the Florida Solar Energy Center in Cocoa, FL.
