Welcome to the Solar Pirates!

STEM Program

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. We focus on these areas together not only because the skills and knowledge in each discipline are essential for student success, but also because these fields are deeply intertwined in the real world and in how students learn most effectively.

Entirely by students

The work done on our previous solar car, and our new solar car, is done completely by students, with the help and supervision from our teachers or mentors. The work being done on our new solar car would not be possible without their help, as well as our many sponsors.

New York Representative

We are the only team from New York that currently participates in the Solar Car Challenge that takes place in Texas every summer. In the past we were able to attain second place three years in a row. That's second place in the entire country!'
