United Cakes of America from Mount Arlington Public School emerged victorious as the Overall Winner. In addition to individual awards, United Cakes of America earned possession of the JSS Solar Cup for one year until it is passed to next year’s winner. The overall winner’s school name, Mount Arlington Public School, will be engraved on the trophy.

Students from the winning Mt. Arlington team

Nearly 5,000 students and 85 school teams from 10 New Jersey counties participated in the hands-on program introducing students to alternative energy science and engineering aligned with STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

The Inter-County Final races wrapped up months of effort by teams of middle school students who designed, built, documented and raced their solar-powered model racing cars en route to the championship. Participating teams earned a right to compete by winning in one or more categories at the five divisional races held last week.

Students competed in the categories of Speed, Engineering, Craftsmanship, Best Use of Recycled Materials and Student Choice. Each team was also required to submit a Progress Journal that documented the history of their car from concept through design, development and testing. Immediately following the races, awards were presented to each student on the winning teams.TransOptions 16th Annual Solar Sprint Competition: Congrats to Winners from Mt. Arlington

Typically running on solar energy, the model car racing action was brought indoors due to inclement weather but schools were ready to race with the battery-powered panels TransOptions provided instead.

The 2017 winners are:
