14-10-11 - Aurora Arrives in Alice Springs

Aurora went on display again today with Southern Aurora, this time in Alice Springs at Todd Mall accompanied by RiAus and Discovery Channel presenter Dr. Zoz Brooks.

Northern Territory Events and World Solar Challenge representatives also joined in the fun and provided water bottles for visitors as Aurora entertained a slightly different crowd.

The Aurora team were visited by around 500 people during the day ranging from tradesmen, students, tourists and those from the local community.

Students that had competed in the local model solar car competition also came down to check out the team.

Aurora Educational Outreach Leader Martin Brook today gave interviews to two local radio stations about the science of solar cars as well as the future of solar cars.

“Being a Melbourne based team it means that we don’t often get to visit a lot of these communities and so It’s great to see how interested they get in the World Solar Challenge and our solar cars,” he said.

RiAus documented Aurora team member Nick Grant demonstrating how to get into a solar car which can be seen here .

Meanwhile back at Hidden Valley, the racing team successfully completed dynamic scrutineering and prepares for an early start tomorrow morning.

Regular updates and pictures can be seen on Aurora’s public facebook page .
