Solar Fair

The Cupertino Middle School "Solar Fair" is a combination green science fair, carnival, and expo -- fun for the students, parents, and local community.  Students compete in either a science project, solar car race or solar oven competition to win metals.  Carnival games and raffle prizes raise money for the Solar Lab

Local PV Solar Installation companies offer the local community technology presentations and information about the benefits of installing solar panels on their on homes and businesses.
