Who We Are
Founded in 1988, the Midnight Sun rose with the concept of a solar powered bike. Named after the natural phenomenon in the Arctic, the Midnight Sun is when the sun remains visible for 24 hours a day during the summer – the ideal situation for sustainable solar power. Now, as the largest student run project on campus, we have moved on from bikes to designing and producing world-class solar race cars for competitions around the globe. With a team of almost all University of Waterloo undergraduates and funding from our sponsors, we have managed to build and race 10 solar racecars.
