CLEVELAND – Cleveland Public Power’s (CPP) Public Power Week celebrations will culminate on Saturday, October 10th with the 2nd Annual Solar Sprint, a solar-powered car race for students in grades 3-8. The CPP Solar Sprint engages youth in grades three through eight in the design and construction of a model solar car, which they will then use to compete in timed races during the Public Power Week Open House. The Cleveland Metropolitan School District is represented well in the competition, fielding teams from Charles Mooney, Clara Westropp, Campus International and Wade Park. Additional teams competing include the Broadway Boys & Girls Club and Metro Catholic School.
“I am pleased to see the growth in this event. We have successfully doubled the number of teams participating and to see that we are impacting the lives of our students through this fun and educational project speaks to our mission here at CPP,” said Cleveland Public Power Commissioner, Ivan Henderson.
CPP is pleased to have WKYC-TV 3 Weekend Anchor Marcus Walter and WZAK 93.1 On-Air Personality Haz Matthews serving as judges in the Solar Sprint.
