We are the University of Florida's Solar Gators, a team dedicated to building a Solar Powered car capable of competing at international competition. Through the last year, we have worked on a project that was nearly considered impossible: designing a car from scratch, without any funding from the University. However, we are insanely close to our goals, with all of design done, and only a small bit of manufacturing left for mechanical. The biggest barrier to us reaching our competition in a month is the purchase of items such as batteries, metals, and the motor. With your help, we can make a car that is capable of going to competition, and set up an organization that will be stable enough to run for the next few years.
