Team 2021

20 students form the basis of the Agoria Solar Team. They have fifteen months for the design and construction of the next solar car to participate in the Moroccan Solar Challenge of 2021. This is the most challenging adventure for solar cars in the world where teams have to drive more than 2500 kilometres in the Moroccan Sahara alongside the foot of the Atlas mountains.
