When I heard the Agoria Solar Team was recruiting, I didn’t hesitate: this was the challenge I was looking for. As part of a team of seven motivated engineering students, we are preparing the Bluepoint for the Sasol Solar Challenge. Improving an already well-designed solar car and taking it all the way to South Africa for the first time is a grueling task, but that’s what sets it apart from other challenges. This year I’ll have to step out of my comfort zone and put the theoretical knowledge I have acquired during my bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering to good use.
By the end of the year I hope to look back on an improved solar car, a victory in South Africa and an unforgettable experience!
