The students who make up the team just won the school’s third state title — two in three years. Team members are headed to prestigious engineering schools to create things that will save the world, clearing hurdles of a more universally beneficial sort. Solar Rollers is a high school energy education program. Teams design, build and race high-performance solar-powered radio-controlled cars. Teams compete in a series of races; the main event is a 60-minute endurance race after limited solar charging. Students are also grilled on their knowledge of solar power and the energy systems that make their cars run. Battle Mountain was this year’s state title winner. Walking Mountains Science Center’s team was second, and Summit High School’s team finished third. Like many racing teams, Battle Mountain entered two Solar Roller cars. The first is a carbon fiber car. The other is the competition’s first 3D-printed solar race car, the idea of faculty sponsor and coach Daniel Lewandowski. Because racing is as much...
