How do I build a solar boat ?


I would like to make a small solar boat for a school project, Can someone tell me how I could build it ? I want to controle it with a remote.
I want a really small one because I’m going to present it in a closed place
need some help

Edmund Scientific has kits to build solar boats. If you don’t want to buy a kit, you can take a look at theirs and get ideas to build your own. They have lots of components you can buy that you should be able to make your own from.
