How many times has your team participated in the event?

4 times.

What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

The name of our car is ‘Taegeuk’. ‘Taegeuk’ is a pattern which is at the middle of flag of Korea. The spirit of Taegeuk is leading a happy life. So we wanted to express challenging youth of Korea. We put so much effort into this car to upgrade our car.

What is unique about your solar car?

We drew giant wave in Taegeuk form. The unique point of this is that every team member’s face is in it. We wanted to remember our passion through BWSC 17.

Why does your team value participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge?

It is hard to challenge something. Like others, it is hard to get a job or start a business. Also there aren’t any clear standard for this. This is why we need to prepare. We are pioneering our meaningful life by participating in BWSC17. Also this is why we are taking part in this contest.

What is the one thing your team is looking forward to when you visit Australia?

We want to meet and interchange experiences with other great teams. Australia is the place where we can be with them and have fun with them.
