The ANU World Solar Challenge team ‘Sol Invictus  (Latin for invincible sun) was founded in 2015 and consists of a group of enthusiastic students and academics.

Together, we crossed the finish line in the 2017 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge and beyond.  This flagship extracurricular program showcases The Australian National University’s world-leading knowledge and research from across all disciplines.

The team consists of both a technical and business team, including students from disciplines as varied as engineering and computer science, to marketing and law.
