The Illinois State University Solar Car Team aims to offer a unique learning
experience for students interested in science, engineering, and technology as
well as to provide an educational program to demonstrate the benefits of
alternative energy to Illinois State University and neighboring communities. We
plan to continue competing in races across North America and the world as a way
to test and improve our skills and promote a greener future.
The Illinois State University Solar Race Team is a multidisciplinary team of
students and faculty who volunteer time and energy to advance their skills and
the promise of renewable energy. Led by Physics majors Ryan Meitl & Tony
Battaglia and music major Al Hackel, the team consists of more than 20 students
and alumni from four departments at Illinois State University. The student team
is advised by Professors Dan Holland, Brian Clark, David Marx, and Jim Dunham in
the Physics department.
