Posted on 11 Aug 2015

Like they did last year, VS-SOLAR will be bringing to the Maker Faire some solar powered vehicles that you’ll be able to drive around the venue.

As organizers for the Portugal Solar Challenge together with the Lisbon Faculty of Sciences, they will also bring over some extra materials and videos from the first solar-powered car race in Portugal.

Paulo Carvalho, who leads this project, comes from Sintra. Aged 48, he’s devoted years to raising awareness of the potential of solar energy in a country like Portugal. He also organises road safety events where kids can drive his solar vehicles, in order to expose them to the possibilities of solar power and kindle their imagination.
