The solar car project began in 1989 and is an entirely student-run, non-profit organization fueled by its members’ passion for environmentally sustainable technology. The team designs and builds solar powered cars to race in the 2000 mile long World Solar Challenge in the Australian Outback.

The team generally operates on a two-year design and build cycle and enters the finished car in a cross-continental solar race.
