The EnergyWhiz Olympics is held annually at the Florida Solar Energy Center and is composed of the Junior Solar Sprint, Hydrogen Sprint, Energy Innovations and the Solar Energy Cook-off. The Junior Solar Sprint is a competition that challenges middle school students to design, build and race model solar cars. The Hydrogen Sprint is a high school competition that was developed to provide opportunities for students to explore hydrogen power with a hands-on design component and a multimedia presentation. Energy Innovations is a real world, full-scale photovoltaic design challenge for middle school and high school students. The newest addition is the Solar Energy Cook-off where 4th though 8th graders design and build solar cookers that are demonstrated.
