Hi. My name is Sarah Melnbrink and I'm writing this as a Do Now for my internet class. My idea is to have players build a.....solar powered boat, that can be sailed acrossed a lake. Thank you for your time.

I really like your idea for building solar powepowered boats. There are lots of possible designs that teams could build. There is a good website at www.ecotopia.com that has several possibilities. I do have some questions – Should teams be allowed to use batteries or peddle generators to boost the solar panels? Would teams be allowed to form the solar panels into sails and get a boost from the wind? Should the boat only be powered by solar cells? This is a great suggestion.
