About this Grantee

To stimulate interest in technical education, promote the use of renewable sources of energy, and stress the importance of science and engineering, Mr. Rosenberg and his partners implement a solar car challenge. Students from three high schools build a solar-powered vehicle to enter in a national competition and study fundraising and budgeting concepts to inform their corporate presentations to raise funds to support the project. To highlight the milestones of the project and document the progress, students collaborate to create a television production.
