UBC Solar is a
student engineering team at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver,
Canada. Our objective is to promote public awareness and encourage further
technical innovation and application of solar technologies. We aim to do this
by demonstrating the practical power of the solar energy through developing
solar powered race vehicles.
Our team was
founded in late 2008 and we plan to compete in international competitions such as the World Solar Challenge.
This weeklong 1500+ km race will test not just our vehicle, but the strength of
our team. With over 20 students from background areas including engineering,
science, and business, we feel that we are up to the challenges we will face.
