Beginning a tradition of excellence
The American Solar Challenge is a competition to design, build, and drive solar-powered cars in a cross-country rally event. The event has had over two decades of organized events in North America. Now, our team at UCSD is looking to make their impact and become a part of the history of this prestigious and innovative challenge. The non-profit club is run by students and is founded on the belief that sustainable energy will play a pivotal role in the future of energy production. We give students at UCSD an opportunity to gain valuable engineering and business experience, while also raising awareness for sustainable energy in our communities.
Our team of 20+ students will be entering the American Solar Challenge in 2018. Learn more about the team members and their roles.
Our mechanical and electrical teams work each week to design and build various parts of the car including the chassis, suspension, and motor.
Our team's goals for design and creation are made a reality with the help of our sponsors. Learn more about those who support us, and how to become a supporter.
