In September of this year, a brand new team of enthusiastic students kicked off their adventure to design and build a new solar car from the ground up. Even though we were all still strangers to each other, we were ready for a year full of challenges. Since then we have been at the office full time, working on the conceptualization of our vision. What have we been working on in the last months of 2018? And moreover: what is 2019 going to bring us?

END OF 2018,
"The year started with getting to know the ideas and vision of each team member. It took several brainstorm sessions and lengthy discussions, but eventually, we succeeded in formulating a common ground we all believe in. This shared passion is the starting point for the strong bond between all team members that already became visible during the team weekend. But not only this has contributed to the team building so far. As the team manager, I am continuously working on the team dynamics. This year is not only about building a solar car; without a passionate team that works together as one, that goal would not be possible."
"With just one year on the clock, translating our vision into an achievable goal was not easy. As the project manager, I am responsible for the very complex plan. Luckily, all forms of complexity have a beginning and an end. We broke the car up into small tasks and deadlines. Where we started with just a list of key features, we now have a detailed plan."
"Making the planning is step one, but sticking to it may be an even greater challenge. In the past few months, we have worked hard to create a design that is not only very aerodynamic but also good-looking. On the 12th of December, we successfully finished the exterior design: our first big deadline!

When I look at our design I get very excited for the upcoming months. It is a strange feeling that something that started as an idea, is going to be an actual car just a couple of months from now. I am looking forward to showing all of you what we believe the car of the future will look like!"
In previous months we have visited many events with Stella Vie. Showing the car to our fans still gets us excited! At the end of November we even got the chance to tell the President of Singapore all about our project. 
The holidays are the shortest days of the year. Or in other words, the days with the fewest sun hours... This time of the year we need your energy! Simultaneous with the days getting longer, you can support our progress up to the moment we will present our brand new solar car. You can contribute to the parts of the car we are working on at that moment. We are currently finalizing the exterior design of the car. Share your energy with us!
