Professionals, makers and students, joining forces to build one of the world's most efficient solar-powered cars
The mission of the Innovation Solar Car Project is to create a community of students, hobbyists, makers and professionals, who come together to think, learn, exchange ideas, and build. We encourage individual creativity, initiative, and the sharing of knowledge and ideas. We strive to learn, apply and demonstrate the latest manufacturing methods and technologies. We are open to any and all who want to learn and to contribute. Our venue is open to the public and we encourage visitors to view our space and watch us work. Our research, hardware and software developments are open and available to the public and we will freely give a helping hand to anyone who can make use of our technologies.
We believe that project-based, hands-on education is fun, rewarding, and one of the most effective methods of life-long learning. Everyone has something to contribute, and through a collaborative effort toward a common goal, every participant will gain important experience, improve their skills, and make lasting friendships.
There are several 'maker spaces' where people can take classes and use equipment. The Innovation Solar Car Project is different. In addition to providing education, a working space and digital fabrication equipment, we are all working together toward a common goal: to build the world's most efficient solar powered car!
We are looking for community members to spend a few hours each week mentoring talented students.
Building a solar car is not cheap. We need community support to make this happen!
The Innovation Solar Car Project is looking for talented students who want to work hard and have fun doing it!
