In 1993, Dr. Lehman Marks initiated the Solar Car Challenge, a contest in which high schools and colleges design, build, and race a solar-powered vehicle. More than 65 schools in 20 states have participated in this event. This creative engineering project showcases students’ abilities to problem solving and work as a team.

Liberty Christian began dreaming of becoming a part of the Solar Car Challenge in 2006. Our first race at the Texas Motor Speedway occurred in 2008. The success of the program hinges on investment from members of the Applied Engineering class, high school volunteers, wonderful coaches, and faithful sponsors like CoServ Electric.
