Runnin’ on Shine

Many Americans celebrate the Fourth of July holiday with fireworks and fun in the sun. At Appalachian State University, a team of students are putting the sun to work over the holiday – to power a race car. July 3-9, at the Circuit of The Americas racetrack in Austin, Texas, 15 Appalachian students will return for the second year to the Formula Sun Grand Prix to race their solar vehicle, Apperion, in an international race and endurance test of the technology that will power cars of the future.
