Solar Olympics


The Solar Olympics is a competition organised by the Agoria Solar Team for secondary school students to show what they can achieve with just solar energy and creativity.

You can participate in one of the following classes:

  • Gadget class
    Think of a cool solar-powered gadget. Be creative! If your idea is among the best 20 entries, you can realize the gadget at our expense and present it at
    the Finals Day.

  • Challenger class
    Design a mini solar car! Is your proposed cart one of the best ten concepts? Then you can build it at our expense. On the Finals Day the ten teams will
    race against each other over 15 metres in a straight line. The fastest wins!

This year the Solar Team organized a Pitch Bootcamp for the second time. This

gives an extra dimension to the competition by not only making the students enthusiastic about technology, but also stimulating their entrepreneurship and introducing them to issues such as pitching and business plans.
