Designing and building world-class solar vehicles is no easy feat. It requires a combination of creativity, engineering prowess, communication, and public support. We are almost entirely comprised of undergraduate students and take pride in spreading our vision of renewable energy to students across all faculties. Midnight Sun has grown to become the largest student-run team at the University of Waterloo. The Midnight Sun Solar Rayce Car Team is made up of three sub-teams: Electrical, Mechanical, and Business. Each of them, led by their own managers, is responsible for various aspects of the car. Working together, our exceptional teamwork creates the success that is the Midnight Sun Solar Rayce Car Team.
