On Saturday, May 4, 2013, team members from South County Youth Network (SCYN) traveled to Richmond, Virginia to participant in the 2013 Science Museum of Virginia Junior Solar Sprint.  SCYN’s car was designed and built by team members: Erykah Moorer, freshman, Mt. Vernon High School; Aaron Moorer, eighth grader, Walt Whitman Middle School; and their father/coach, Cory Miller.

According to Burnette Scarboro, South County Youth Network’s executive officer, “this project validates the talents and abilities that exist within our youth and families.  SCYN is committed to offering quality programs and activities that empower our youth;  promote STEAM (science, technology, engineering, [the] arts, and math); and developing a community of learners.”

SCYN’s team won in the following categories:

3rd Place Design Winner; 2nd Place Performing Racer; and Fastest Heat and Overall Winner – determined by the race judges.  Students received individual prizes and SCYN received a $50 gift certificate to “Shop 4 Science.”
