VIDEO: Students soar with solar-powered boats at 2016 Solar Cup

When it comes to the 2016 Solar Cup, one student summed it for us: “You learn a lot and you gain a lot.”

The Solar Cup is not only an event, but a seven-month after-school program in which teams of students from throughout Southern California build and race solar-powered boats.

Grab a seat right by the water and let our Media Services team show you some great highlights.
