Welcome to the Oregon Solar Car Team
The team was started in 2007 by Thomas Stueve, under the name Oregon High School Solar Car Team. The team has been fueled by dedicated and determined members since its inception. Since 2007, the team has built two solar-powered cars: Heliocentric and Heliocentric II. These cars have raced on the Texas Motor Speedway for the High School Solar Challenge 4 times in total. The team is now working on a third car called Lumidos, which will be created out of carbon fiber with forms from Stanfordâs solar car, under our new name Oregon Solar Car Team.
We build and race solar-powered cars made from carbon fiber and titanium. We develop essential marketing and STEM skills in our members who are able to act professionally. Our team builds cars, but we also build passion, knowledge, and a work ethic in our team members.
We plan to make Lumidos our most efficient and successful car to date. We envision ourselves racing in Australia at the World Solar Challenge. We choose to use cutting-edge materials and techniques to further the publicâs understanding of solar energy and transportation.
