Team History

Founded in 1988, Midnight Sun remains one of the oldest student design teams at the University of Waterloo. Our rich history of excellence and innovation has been passed down to new members and over the years, vehicle designs have rapidly evolved, due to their drive to reach for higher and more ambitious goals.

Most recently in 2018, Midnight Sun became the first Canadian team to compete in the cruiser class category and finish at the American Solar Challenge.  We now aim to go beyond this accomplishment and for 2019, we have raised the bar and are ready to face greater challenges.
