Driven by the aspiration of building a solar car, a group of mechanical and electricalengineering students assembled in late 2016, starting the SolEaters team at UCI. Theteam officially started in March 2017 after receiving professional advisement fromprofessors and mentors. The SolEaters, containing fourty students from diverse majors (electrical,mechanical, biomedical, materials science engineering, physics, and business), plansto compete in the 2019 Formula Sun Grand Prix. Our goal is to design and build afunctional solar car that complies with Formula Sun Grand Prix regulations.
Our team members learn how to machine, fabricate, and build industrial automotive components from raw materials in our on-campus solar car workshop.

Driven by my passion for renewable energy and cars, I founded this team in Spring 2017 with the goal of combining my two passions and moving towards a more renewable future.
Living in the most polluted region in the country, I joined Solar Car to contribute to the solution for sustainable transportation.
