The DUEM team recently presented their current solar car, DUSC, at the local event EcoFest, hosted at St. John’s Church in Neville’s Cross, Durham on 10th June. The festival was marking its 10th anniversary and the theme of the day was energy. Despite the rainy weather attempting to spoil the day, the event was a huge success with hundreds of locals spanning all ages attending the event. The interest in the solar car was humbling and incredibly diverse, ranging from parents and grandparents who were interested in the science of the car, many of whom had heard about the solar car on local news channels, to children who couldn’t wait to hop inside the cockpit and feel what it’s like to drive the car. Having received positive feedback from the organisers about our attendance at the event, we will certainly be looking to return next year!
