Share

Dear Readers & Friends,

(Please click onred linksbelow)

This post will be a continuing reporting on American Solar Challenge (ASC) 2012.  Since many of the ASC teams have displayed tremendous amount of team effort, enthusiasm, and support from their schools, community, and alumni, Sun Is The Future would like to take this opportunity to share images of these special moments that were necessary in order to make the ASC solar car race possible, moments of cooperative team spirit, of ingenuity in solving problems, of willingness to do what it takes to carry the torch toward our Renewable and Solar Energy Age….

Hope you will enjoy these photos below, all under ( Creative Commons with attribution: photographed by Susan Sun Nunamaker at www.sunisthefuture.net).

More interviews/videos with various team members will be coming in future posts. Until then,

~have a bright and sunny day~
