The SEVT sets its goals beyond winning races. The team is dedicated to community outreach, especially to K-12 students. Each year, members of the SEVT give presentations and shop tours to elementary, middle, and high school students. We aim to inspire these students to pursue careers in science and engineering. You can arrange a shop tour through our visit request form.
The SEVT also participates in community events to promote alternative energy, clean transportation, and engineering education. By displaying Valkyrie and talking about solar car racing, we hope to encourage discussion about sustainability and technology.
We’ll be bringing Valkyrie to a number of upcoming events as discussed on our blog, so come by and see us!
In addition to school visits, some of the memorable and recent events we have participated in include:
- 2015 MIT xFair
