  • The Science Museum
  • SolarFox, the solar car designed and built in UCL Mechanical Engineering, will be on display at the Science Museum from 19-21 February 2008.

    In 2007 a team of UCL staff and students overcame sand storms and extreme winds to successfully complete the Panasonic World Solar Challenge, a 3,021Km race from Darwin to Adelaide in solar-powered cars. The team finished 10th out of 21 cars in their class, taking just over 63 hours - including compulsory stops - at an average speed of 43kmh.

    The Science Museum's 'Lights! Cars! Action!' exhibition will also feature footage of SolarFox in action, the technology beneath the bonnet and members of Team SolarFox at various times. The exhibition is open 11am-1pm and 2-4pm.
