Hi, I’m Harley! I am a third year Electrical Engineering student pursuing a minor in Physics.  My main interests within my major are Power Engineering and RF Engineering however I have always had a strong interest in renewable energy. My goal for the year is to provide a welcoming atmosphere for anybody interested in working with the team and to share ideas and knowledge so that we can learn and grow together as a team.

Hi, I'm Shiloh! I am a second year Electrical Engineering major. I have always had a passion for literature, politics, and mechanisms of travel- be that cars, trains, airplanes, rockets. They provide our lives with freedom and agency on a scale unparalleled in human history. My dream is to help create the travel of the future-; travel that is sustainable, ethical and powered by the sun.

Solar Team 2016-2017

Projects

Solar Team of Formula Slug is up to a lot of stuff. Check out our projects below!

SDSCS

We are working on the fabrication of Small-Device Solar Charging Stations (SDSCS) for high-density areas around campus. These locations include bus stops, the Quarry plaza, and the East Field athletic facilities. The SDSCS would be off-the-grid solar charging stations for students, faculty, and visitors to safely charge laptops, phones, or other small devices.

Lincoln

Lincoln is codename for the solar array we're bringing to the FSAE Electric competition in Lincoln, Nebraska. Rather than using a generator to run power tools at competition, we plan on using our own generator made from a solar array of 8 panels, connected to an insulated work station and equipped with outlets. Completion of Solar Lincoln is due for the end of Spring Quarter 2017.
