Outdoor solar car workshops at North Vancouver Museum's Making Tracks transportation festival




Kids and parents had great fun under the Solar Roadshow tent at this outdoor festival commemorating advances in transportation. Future cars (model solar powered vehicles) and other solar devices were built by kids and parents. After building them, people raced their electric cars on the wooden table in the foreground.

Presented by Rob Matthies, contact (604) 7 3 9 - 7 7 1 7.

Sustainable energy, sustainable transportation, sustainability in education is the subtle message from the Solar Power Roadshow's fun activities for schools, community centres, festivals, and even birthday parties and church fundraisers, in greater Vancouver and other BC municipalities, including Vancouver Island. Its non-formal and free form workshops allow kids from 6 to 76 to play with renewable energy devices and models, for a sustainable future world and post-carbon environment. Climate change is a growing problem that compels every community to learn more, and educate its members, about sustainability.
