Every April elementary, middle, and high school students test and improve uniquely designed solar cars, solar cookers, and energy-efficient critter condos at the North Florida Energy Whiz Expo. Those interested may take their designs to state level competition at the Florida Solar Energy Center in Cocoa, FL.
Hands On Gainesville partners with the Alachua County Public Schools, the Florida Solar Energy Center, and multiple university engineering clubs. We will have even more partners joining us in 2019!
