Racing the sun with AUSRT Bridgestone World Solar Car Challenge

Helping tertiary students prepare for future careers in STEM is one reason Babcock is a supporter of the Adelaide University Solar Racing Team (AUSRT).

The AUSRT includes engineering students, assisted by academics and workshop technicians, and Babcock has been a sponsor for the past two years.

During October, the biennial Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, a 3000km race across the outback from Darwin to Adelaide, saw more drama and excitement than usual and AUSRT was the only Australian team to complete the race with their Lumen II MK II.

Babcock is committed to the ongoing encouragement and sponsorship of STEM-related activities and environmentally sustainable technologies.
