NUsolar is student-led organization designing, manufacturing and racing the next generation of solar powered electric vehicles. Founded in 1997 by a small team of students and faculty at Northwestern University, NUsolar has since expanded, building 7 custom vehicles and participating in over 10 solar car competitions. Our mission is to enhance the educational experiences of our student members as well as promote the development of sustainable technologies on campus and within the Chicagoland area.
Comprised of more than 40 student members across an array of ages and disciplines, our diverse team is committed to the singular goal of designing the next-generation solar vehicle.
After debuting our latest vehicle SC7 at the 2019 Formula Sun Grand Prix, our efforts are currently dedicated towards enhancing the performance of our existing vehicle SC7s for FSGP 2023.
The perpetuation of our team's hard work and legacy would not be possible without the collective support of our corporate sponsors and individual donations.
