Characteristics of team

Our team is comprised completely of undergraduate liberal arts students. We pride ourselves on our ability to design, build, test, and race a solar powered car with individuals who have the desire to learn new things outside of their normal classes.

Team's "ambitions"
for this year's BWSC

Our team has two goals:
1) Glorify God
2) Do our best
We work every moment of every day to keep these two goals in our minds, as we take on the challenge of crossing Australia in a solar car.

Message from Bridgestone

Bridgestone Americas has been supporting teams in North America since 2014 and we look forward to continuing this support for the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. These students have been very enjoyable to work with, allowing us into their facilities to show us some the amazing work they are doing.

I wish our teams from the U.S.A. and Canada the absolute best. Most of all, I hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable race. These teams deserve to do very well with all of the hard work and time they put into these vehicles.
