We are planning to create a solar paneled solar car that runs on nothing but solar power. We are going to do this by connecting the solar panel to the RC car battery component. This will send energy from the solar panel to the motor and recharge the rechargeable batteries that we have installed, doing this will increase the running time of the car will store unused energy rather than wasting it.
RC Car: $40.00 Solar panel: $50.00 We were given $30 each which added up to about $180. we didnt need all of the funding but it was good to have it there for back up.

our product can be used for surveillance purposes and for toy purposes. If we were to sell our product we would sell it for about $100 to pay us back and to give us a little profit of $10. before selling it we would make some small modifications so that the car can be better and more fine tuned then what it is now.
When building the solar powered RC car we used basic skills with, wiring, building and creation. We used valuable sources such us a person from the uni and internet sites. During the creation we had a few small problems. We had trouble trying to work around the wiring with the solar panel. It was hard to find where to exactly wire up the solar panel with the car. The solution we found was to seek help from the helper from the uni, he told us to wire the panel up to the batteries component which will then run energy straight to the motor of the car.
