Happy New Year!!

We are almost ready to go to LancAir and create the new and (hopefully) last parts of our frame. A student from the Stanford University came and spoke to us today. He was very nice and helped us figure out some more possible solutions for our car, as well as theorizing the best way to attatch and possibly hinge the bubble of our car to the top of it.

We have just a few more things to do, and then we will be ready to put our frame together. Following that, we will...

Upcoming Things

We will be meeting twice over winter break: December 30 and January 4. Sometime on one of these days we hope to go to LancAir to finish creating our frame. Then we will be able to finish putiting the frame together, attatching it to our car, and prep for painting. 

We are hoping to get someone from the Stanford Solar Car Team (he came last year to speak with us) to come and talk with us. This may or may not happen, but we will email you the date so please make sure you're there wh...

We're getting there! How you can help!

Each meeting, we get closer and closer to our goal.

We are halfway done creating our new frame, which means that soon we will be able to paint our car and finish its electrical system. We're currently working on creating a webstore, where people can support us by buying some of our team merchandise. Also, we are working on putting our sponsors' logos on our new trailor.

A wonderful sponsor family has donated to us using Thrivent Choice Dollars. If you would like to do something s...

Webstore Coming Soon!

We are going to have a webstore coming soon where we will be selling things to support our team! We will be selling  bracelets with our car's name on it, and potentially t-shirts as well. We will also be selling DVDs of the documentary made by Mark Lindow of our 2012 trip to the Race in Texas. We hope that you will check it out when we have it up and running, and find more ways to support our team.
