Support the first Arabian and Egyptian team participating for the first time in Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2017. Zewail City Solar Car team, a team of 24 undergraduate students studying Aerospace Engineering and Renewable Energy Engineering, is preparing to build the first solar car ever to be built from scratch by Egyptian hands for the first time to participate in the largest competition for solar car racing in the world. We have been working on the design of the car since a year. We built two prototypes with a very low cost to gain more hands on experience. We also made a partnership with a Japanese team who came all the way from Japan with their solar car and spent three weeks with us teaching us and giving us some useful tips on how to build and efficient solar car. We are now done with our final design of the solar car and ready to start building it. We are going to build the car, ship it to Australia in October 2017 and race with teams from the top universities in the whole world like Michigan, MIT, Cambridge, TU Delft…. We are very enthusiastic and proud to hold the flag of Egypt there for the first time since the launch of this competition in 1980.
Of course this huge and amazing mission can’t be done without the support of each and every citizen, governmental and nongovernmental entities in Egypt who believe that Egyptian youth still have the ability and passion to break new records and to make the future brighter and to create new industries in the beautiful Egypt.
Support doesn’t have to be in terms of money. Your positive comments always push us forward so please keep supporting us.
Also your financial support will help us a lot in the journey as the budget of the project is really huge but it’s not an obstacle because we believe that with your support it will be collected in the shortest time.
We managed to get some multinational companies as sponsors with us but yet we still have a shortage of money to be able to build the whole car.
We are seeking $ 30,000 through this crowd funding campaign out of $ 100,000 of the total needed budget. This amount is divided into 3 equal milestones ($ 10,000 for each).
We really believe that, with your support, we will collect them in a time record. So let’s do it and create the bright future and put the name of Egypt higher. Support Zewail Solar Car Team now.
