E15227: How to Build a Solar Car in Two Years in Splash 2022 (Nov. 19 - 20, 2022)
We are MIT Solar Car! Every two years, we design, build, and race a solar powered car that goes on the road! We'll show you the art of solar racing and the process of building a solar car with some fancy glue, paper, and metal.


E14980: How to Build a Solar Car in Spark 2022 (Mar. 12 - 13, 2022)
MIT’s Solar Electric Vehicle Team (SEVT) is faced with a unique challenge: design, manufacture, and construct a solar-powered vehicle from scratch to compete in a long distance endurance race. By long distance, we mean about 1,500 miles! Students from across disciplines come together to create a community of teammates and friends working to solve real-world problems with significant impacts. We’ll cover topics from the construction of our carbon-fiber aeroshell, to the arrangement of the 416 Li-ion cells in our battery, and to the machining of our custom steering system. Apart from engineering, members learn invaluable business and project-management skills by approaching this challenge from a higher level. Come check out how we build a solar car and how the car works!


E14693: How to Build a Solar Car in Splash 2021 (Nov. 20 - 21, 2021)
MIT’s Solar Electric Vehicle Team (SEVT) is faced with a unique challenge: design, manufacture, and construct a solar-powered vehicle from scratch to compete in a long distance endurance race. By long distance, we mean about 2,000 miles! Come check out how we accomplish such a task and how a solar car works! We’ll cover topics from the construction of our carbon-fiber aeroshell to the arrangement of the 416 Li-ion cells in our battery to the machining of our custom steering system. Students from across disciplines come together to create a community of teammates and friends working to solve real-world problems with significant impacts. Apart from engineering, members learn invaluable business and project-management skills by approaching this challenge from a higher level. As a student-run team, this project is our heart and soul, and we are able to learn and grow as engineers, teammates, and people as we face new challenges in the world of solar.


E14299: How Does a Solar Car Work? in Splash 2020 (Nov. 14 - 15, 2020)
MIT’s Solar Electric Vehicle Team (SEVT) is faced with a unique challenge: design, manufacture, and construct a solar-powered vehicle from scratch to compete in a long distance endurance race.
