UMN Solar Vehicle Project: Eos II
Don't miss the incredible "Eos II" created by the University of Minnesota Solar Vehicle Project team! This student-fueled creation required more than 50,000 hours to build and is fresh off its completion of the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia where it raced over 1,860 miles to become one of five crusier class teams to finish! Check it out and wish it good luck before it leaves to compete in the 2018 American Solar Challenge!
This vehicle will be on display Saturday, March 10th and Sunday, March 11th in the Ride & Drive area.
The University of Minnesota Solar Vehicle Project was founded by a group of undergraduate students from the U of M College of Science and Engineering in 1990 and competed in the 1993 GM Sunrayce with its first Solar Car, Aurora I. Since then, The Solar Vehicle Project has remained true to its original foundation as a student administered, designed, and built project that teaches members about engineering and management in a complete product development environment. The team has built thirteen solar vehicles, and is one of the most decorated teams in America. Interested in learning more? Check out http://umnsvp.org/.
