We have always thought about our project as being so much more than just building the best solar car. We have an incredibly powerful educational platform to inspire the next generation.

We bring the solar car to schools and colleges across the UK and the world, giving students the unique experience of seeing a solar car up close. We tailor a specific programme for each school to engage students of all ages in what it takes to design, build, drive and market a solar car like ours.

It shows students a different perspective on sustainable energy, and encourages them to think differently about the cars of tomorrow.
