2013 Solar Splash Championship Team


With the home of the Wright Brother’s first bicycle shop as a backdrop, Dayton will host the 20th annual World Solar Splash competition on June 11-15 at Eastwood Park in Dayton, Ohio. The event will bring universities from all over the world together to participate in a five-day on-the-water competition.

Cedarville University is the most decorated participant in Solar Splash history, having won the Collegiate World Championship seven out of the last ten years. Dr. Tim Dewhurst, senior professor of mechanical engineering and faculty advisor for Cedarville’s solar boat team, led the effort to bring the Solar Splash to Dayton. He said that having the competition in Dayton will add exposure to the world-class event and also ties in well with Ohio’s goal of advancing innovation with renewable energy sources.
