Thank you Maine Energy Education Program (MEEP) for teaching our 4th graders about energy and running our annual solar car race...held inside with battery packs because of the rainy weather.

Five cars consistently led the pack of 12 cars.
        Fastest was the loon, Gavia (8th grader, Chloe)
        Coming in 2nd place was The Tunnel (5th graders Max, Oliver, and Lucas)
        Tied for 3rd place was The Cinderblock (8th graders Pierce, Chris, and Andrew)
                and Mustachio Mouse (6th graders Matt, Sean, Taki, and Robbie )
        In 5th place was The Miss-Shaped Car (5th graders Irene, Hannah, & Kathryn)

These five cars are invited to the State meet on June 9 in Owl's Head.
