Fly Your Ride! Competition
Sounds complicated? It’s not. Along with SDG&E, we’re looking for students who want to build a vehicle no larger than a shoebox, launch it down a ramp, and see if it can jump a gap. It’s fun, it’s creative, and you don’t have to be a science fair genius to come up with a winning entry. Students from 6th through 12th grade in San Diego County are encouraged to take part.
