Strategy Group

Chief Strategist: Renee Herdtle


Strategy Group is responsible for optimizing the performance of the team during the American Solar Challenge and the World Solar Challenge races. Strategy's main goal is to determine how fast the solar car should travel during the race in order to balance power usage and energy efficiency while still finishing as quickly as possible. The team works closely with all Engineering Groups to determine their best strategy, making this a great place for students interested in problem solving, data analysis, or other engineering applications.


Strategy Group consists of two teams:

  • Design Requirements
  • Race Strategy
