Our Subteams & Meeting Times

Aerodynamics and Composites

Mondays at 8PM
In-person at the space

The Aerodynamics and Composites team is responsible for designing and manufacturing the exterior aerobody of the car. Our focus is to make a lightweight aerobody for the car. To do that, we use composites, a mix of materials, to make the aerobody light and strong, which leads to improved performance.


High Voltage: Mondays & Tuesdays at 5:30PM
Solar: Mondays at 3:30PM & Thursdays at 5PM
Low Voltage: Thursdays at 6PM
In-person at the space

The Electrical team handles everything from the solar array to the telemetry systems and everything in between. We need to have electrical systems and components to run our solar-electric vehicle. We work on the design, installation and wiring of those systems to ensure the car can properly start and operate.


Mondays & Wednesdays at 7:30PM
In-person at the space

The Mechanical Engineering sub-team is responsible for the chassis, suspension, and mechanical controls of the car. We design the chassis of the car which provides a strong structure and mounting points for the car. To ensure the safety of the driver and the reliable control of the car, we need to run countless simulations.


Monday & Friday at 6PM

The Business & Operations sub-team is responsible for all logistical and outreach work. We focus on all non-engineering tasks so the engineering team can build a car, from transporting the car to races and outreach events at schools, to lodging and promotional material. Our journey is only possible with the support of our sponsors.
