Badgerloop, the prize-winning student organization from the UW–Madison College of Engineering, is turning its expertise to a new exciting project: solar-powered cars.
The plan is to compete in the Formula Sun Grand Prix, part of the American Solar Challenge. For that competition, teams build a purely solar-powered car that races on a closed track. The team with the most total laps around the course over three days wins.
New Badgerloop president Eric Udlis, a computer engineering and computer sciences major, will lead the effort in the spring 2022 semester.
