Sun City Challenge

The Sun City Challenge is a high school virtual reality and 3D printing competition to re-engineer, design, and educate the community on the power of renewable energy. High school teams selected from the three categories to design.

  • Design and retrofit a Historic Landmark or Building
  • Design a Smart Sustainable Neighborhood
  • Design the El Paso Star on the Mountain into a Solar-Powered Education Tourist Center

The projects below represent the hard work students performed. They researched and designed environments in 3D applications. Teams were also challenged to export environments into the Oculus VR software.

Please take a look at the projects and witness innovations and the power of renewable energy. A special thanks to El Paso Electric for their generous support. Also a big shout out to UTEP Tech-E Department for all their help train students in these challenging applications.
