30th Annual Solar Boat Regatta

The Minnesota Renewable Energy Society is pleased to announce that the 30th Annual Solar Boat Regatta will be held on May 21st, 2022. MRES’ Solar Boat Competition has given hundreds of students valuable and unique experience with photovoltaic systems, boat design, and construction. MRES is partnering with teachers to enhance the competitive nature of the event, expanding the number of schools participating and extending the solar education throughout the school year.

At the MRES’ Solar Boat Regatta teams demonstrate knowledge of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to design and build boats powered by the sun. They compete in a number of races, culminating with a one-hour endurance race.
