High school students from across the Roaring Fork Valley have been tinkering with toys at school for the past few months. Don’t worry, it’s educational. It's all part of a lesson on solar power. The students have been designing, building and testing solar-powered remote-controlled cars while learning about energy efficiency and renewable energy.
The students’ efforts head to a race near Boulder this weekend in an event hosted by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Aspen Public Radio's Marci Krivonen reports.
