The Sasol Solar Challenge initiative is intended to encourage young people to achieve success in STEM subjects - Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. It helps educates young people in the principles of science, technology, engineering, innovation, teamwork and business; and promotes collaboration between students, industry and government. Students get an opportunity to practically apply the science and technology theory they’ve learnt at school or university, and South African students get a chance to test their engineering skills against some of the best solar car teams in the world.
For many, the ultimate goal - to cross Australia on solar power!
