Thank You and Project Update

May 18, 2017

Thank you to everyone that supported our project!

Competing in international competitions is financially strenuous for student design teams. Such that our team and our university didn't feel comfortable allocating a large portion of our budget into one competition. That being said, we will not be competing in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge this year. Your contributions, despite this decision, will support our endeavors in domestic competitions for years to come.

Moving forward, the team will be competing in the 2017 Formula Sun Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the team as we look to bring home a top finish with our successful 2016 car Solar Miner. Our newest solar car will be unveiled this October, during Homecoming here at S&T.

Thank you for helping us drive the future!
