CYPRUS SOLAR CAR CHALLENGE 2015
SOLAR CAR CHALLENGE - Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th June - Nicosia
"Be inspired by the Sun"!. The Cyprus Institute in co-operation with the Municipality of Nicosia is organizing the Solar Car Challenge 2015. This year's race will take place on Sunday, 28 June 2015, in Nicosia city center (Stasikratous Str., Spyrou Kyprianou Ave., Georgiou Griva Digeni Ave., Dimostheni Severi Ave., and Vasilissis Freiderikis Str.). The participants will design, build, manage and race custom-made solar powered vehicles.
In this popular annual summer event ,Solar Cars will race using the sun as the only fuel. The first Solar Car Challenge was organised by The Cyprus Institute in June 2010, at the Daytona Race Track in Tseri, in collaboration with the Research Promotion Foundation. Due to its great success an annual event was born.
The race is truly high-tech since the teams build their cars, and design their own engineering systems. Unlike most race cars, solar cars are designed with energy constraints imposed by the race regulations. These rules limit the energy used to only that collected from solar radiation. These vehicles represent the green future, radically different than driving a regular car, since they have no fossil fuel engine. All horse power comes from the solar panels on the vehicles which charge the battery. The amazing designs to be presented, offer an one-time experience to spectators, aiming to promote research and innovation in the use of solar energy, and through events like the Solar Car Race, raise the interest of the public, particularly of young people for the use of alternative energy resources.

How to survive the long hot nights this Summer !
Freeze your pillow case and create your own air conditioning using a fan and tray of ice: Sleep expert's top tips to beat the heat at night
- Sleeping in temperatures above 24°C can lead to poorer sleep quality
- Dr Nerina Ramlakhan is a physiologist and sleep therapist
- Advises making an air conditioning unit out of a fan and an ice-tray
- Says eating watermelon and avoiding curry can help keep a person cool
On a hot summer's day, most of us revel in bright sunshine.
But by night, the intense heat can become unbearable.
Experts warn sleeping in temperatures above 24°C causes people to wake up during the night or endure light or fragmented sleep.
Dr Nerina Ramlakhan, a physiologist and sleep therapist, said: 'We all love summer and the long evenings, but the increased temperatures can make it harder to sleep well, which can have a detrimental effect on our health, relationships and work.
Experts warn sleeping in temperatures above 24°C causes people to wake up during the night or only have a light or fragmented sleep
She added: 'A good night's sleep is important in order to process information throughout the day as well as to repair and rebalance the body physically and mentally.
Ideally, in order for us to sleep well, there needs to be a fractional temperature difference between our body and our brain – a warm body and a cool head.'
From washing feet in cold water to avoiding coffee and curry before bed, here she shares her tips for beating the heat...
MAKE YOUR OWN AIR CONDITIONING UNIT
While installing air conditioning in your home comes at great cost, there are ways of improvising.
It sounds far-fetched, but creating your own air conditioning can be simple.
All you need for this is a fan and a tray of ice.
Simply place a fan next to your bed and have it blowing the air over a tray of ice - this will cool the room down as the ice melts.
Do it 20 minutes before you go to bed for the best results.
