The Solar Gators is an organization of about 60 UF students from a wide variety of majors. They are a design team that builds solar-powered electric vehicles and races them against teams from around the world. They are currently trying to raise about $4500 in order to buy a trailer for their car which they will use to take the car to community events to promote awareness of the importance of solar energy and sustainability.
The tentative schedule for this event is:
10:00AM – 10:20 View solar car up close, ask questions
10:20AM – 10:30 Refreshments in design center, student conversations
10:30AM See solar car run (if weather allows)
Meet at 2610 SW 23rd Terr, Gainesville at 10:00am. Google maps may give the wrong point for this address. 23rd Terrace is just off Archer and the solar park is located next to University Commons. Here is the correct location on google maps. Call Stephen at 954-918-2437 if you get lost.
