For the first time in its history, Chapin School Princeton competed in the OASIS Solar Jam Solar Car competition. The 4th annual competition, run by Andrew Lloyd of Princeton Day School drew 60 participants from Princeton Day School, Stuart Country Day, Chapin School, Hopewell Valley Regional Schools, and Cedar Hill Prep.
The Chapin students began building their solar cars in April in the Solar Car Club run by Academic Technologist Pauline DiMaiuta and Lower School Head Shana Lindsey. The students ran in heats of three for the elimination to the final eight.
The outstanding results for Chapin’s team include:
3rd place: Peter Merk, 3rd grade, Chapin
2nd place: Anderson Taylor, 3rd grade, Chapin
1st place: Jayden Davis, 3rd grade, Chapin
OVERALL WINNER in BOTH divisions (3-8): Jayden Davis!
This was a team effort and the sportsmanship was fantastic! Chapin is so proud of their work, dedication, and support of each other.
