To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Stanford Solar Car Project, the Precourt Institute for Energy presents a documentary about the Stanford team's top-five finish in the 2013 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge - a nearly 2,000-mile race across the Australian outback. Project members have built a new car to compete in the October 2015 challenge. 

The documentary features undergraduate team members, family and industry supporters, including project sponsors Panasonic and STMicroelectronics, as well as representatives and alums from Google and Tesla Motors.

The Stanford Solar Car Project began in 1989 as a student-­run organization fueled by its members’ passion for sustainable technology. Since then, student teams have built 12 solar-powered cars to compete in national and international racing events. Over the years, the project has provided dozens of undergraduates a rare opportunity to learn about advanced manufacturing techniques, use cutting-­edge materials and attempt the daunting challenge of revolutionizing vehicle design to promote development of solar technologies for greener transport.
