This past weekend five members of CalSol attended the first Solar Car Conference! The conference was held in Ann Arbor, Michigan, hosted by the University of Michigan’s Solar Car Team and organized by IEF.

We learned a lot and brought members that represented all crucial areas of the team. This made break-out sections highly effective for logistics, electrical knowledge, mechanical expertise, and project management. It was very lucky that this weekend overlapped with our Spring Break at UC Berkeley so that we could focus on absorbing as much of the information as possible!

We were most excited to hear about future regulations. CalSol was happy to participate in the discussion of what specifications may change so that our future vehicle designs may be optimized.

However, the best part was catching up with old friends and making new friends in the solar car community. It is always great sharing our passion for engineering and solar technology with others!
