Cedarville University Wins Solar Splash 2007!


When I first read about the solar energy boat race, Solar Splash, I was immediately intrigued.

I think it's an innovative idea with wonderful educational opportunities and a great start to the building and using of non-polluting, fuel-free vehicles (land, water and air) of the future. read more »

That last inning of the All-Star baseball game last night should be the cover story for Nail-Biter Magazine!
