Teachers are oriented to the program and gather their teams
Prospective teachers learn about the program including the cost, schedule, logistics, and expectations for all participants involved. They then gather and register their teams.
All students attend a comprehensive set of introductory workshops. Industry volunteers and university students lead interactive sessions on the use of solar panels, automotive geometry, structural issues, mechanical design, electrical systems, kart components, and fundraising. Safety is emphasized in all workshops. A video library provides easy access to workshop information throughout the season.
Each listed person on the roster and anyone planning to attend Test Day or Race Day as a part of the team must submit their own copy of each waiver. Waivers must be sent in as new team members are added to the team.
