Messiah College @ Solar Splash

I just found out that Messiah College placed 4th in the recently held Solar Splash competition.

Messiah has been racing in various events since 1997. I first joined the Solar Racing team as a first year student at Messiah. Essentially, Genesis was all about a group of students who got together to build and race a car that was powered entirely with solar energy.

Not to brag, but our team did so well, that we not only walked away with the top technical innovation award, but also had the lightest car (~ 800lbs) and the fastest car (~ >70mph) in the event. Although the results, often don’t speak about the hardships that a racing team goes through, each member definitely learns something over the course of the racing season.

If there’s one thing I learnt as being part of the team, it’s definitely that the little dogs in the race can make all the difference.

Congratulations Genesis II.
