Why does your team value participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge?

We at MDH Solar Team, students from Malardalens University, want to get a better understanding about how product development works in real life. We also want to put our knowledge and expertise into a real life project. In short, the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is a good project to do as a student.

What is the one thing your team is looking forward to when you visit Australia?

We want to experience the whole race and finish it, as well as meet the other teams and see how they have solved different issues about the car compared to us.
