Racing under the Sun
The design of a solar-powered car for taking part in the prestigious World Solar Challenge isn't just another assignment, quite the opposite. It is an enormous project on which 16 students from the Saxion Polytechnic and the University of Twente, The Netherlands, have been working for a good one and a half years. In a series of three articles we'll give you an insight to the project and the activities of the Solar Team Twente. In this first instalment we'll tell you about the race, the team and the origins of the project.
