Coast High School from Huntington Beach and Oxford Preparatory Academy from Los Alamitos will represent Orange County in the Solar Cup competition hosted annually by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.

Anaheim Public Utilities sponsors an entry from Anaheim High School.

Solar Cup is a high school education program in which teams of students from throughout Southern California build and race solar-powered boats. The seven-month program culminates in a three-day competition starting May 19 at Lake Skinner in Temecula Valley.

The program teaches students about conservation of natural resources, electrical and mechanical engineering, problem-solving and more.

Coast High is sponsored by the City of Huntington Beach, while Golden State Water is sponsoring Oxford Prep.
