Metropolitan is modifying this year's Solar Cup Program as part of California's declared State of Emergency and our district's response to address the global COVID-19 outbreak. Out of an abundance of caution and the well-being of our students, teachers and staff, Metropolitan has decided not to host the Solar Cup Technical Inspection scheduled for May 2, 2020 nor the Solar Cup competition event scheduled for May 15-17, 2020.
Solar Cup is a high school education program in which teams of students from throughout Southern California build and race solar-powered boats. The seven-month program culminates in a three-day competition at Lake Skinner, in Temecula Valley. Through the program, students learn about conservation of natural resources, electrical and mechanical engineering, problem solving and much more.
