Driven by Innovation

Founded in 1989, the Stanford Solar Car Project is an entirely student-run, non-profit organization fueled by its members’ passion for environmentally sustainable technology. We provide a unique opportunity for Stanford students to gain valuable hands-on engineering and business experience while raising community awareness of clean energy vehicles. Every two years, the team designs, builds and races a solar car across the Australian Outback in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.

In 2013, our team finished 4th overall and we were North America's No. 1 team. In 2015, we cut our time behind the leading team in half and are more competitive than ever going into the next race.
