Welcome to Team PrISUm
Team PrISUm is a multidisciplinary, student-run organization at Iowa State University (ISU) which designs, builds, and races solar powered electric vehicles across the United States every few years in the American Solar Challenge. Outreach and education are also important aspects of our project as we work to raise awareness about solar energy and efficient transportation. Don't hesitate to email us if you would like to have our solar car at an event.
This project would not be possible without our current and past sponsors. We encourage you to take a look at our sponsorship page and download a copy of the corporate sponsorship packet or an adopt-a-cell form to find out how you can help us pave the way towards a future in renewable energy!
Team PrISUm is getting ready to race!
The Circuit of the Americas Formula 1 track in Austin, TX. will be this year's venue. The track is 3.4 miles long, with a back straight of over 1/2 mile. This year's race could be the fastest, most exciting ever!
Online Donations Update 06-14-2013
Team PrISUm Online Donations are now being handled directly through the ISU Foundation web site. This helps ensure a more secure and efficient transfer of funds, and also helps in the proper recognition of our supporters.
You can click on the Make a Gift graphic, or look at our Sponsorships page for more details. This method is not as smooth as we would like it to be, but we are working with the Foundation to enhance the user experience.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Countdown to FSGP 2013
FSGP 2013 is less than a month away. Team PrISUm is busy not only with early construction of P12, but also making sure P11 Hyperion is ready to race. FSGP 2013 starts June 24th in Austin, Texas, and we're on a roll. The team had a strong showing last summer, winning 2nd place in both races. More recently, other ISU teams including SAE Baja and Lunabotics have won multiple awards for their hard work and dedication to "Science with Practice." Team PrISUm is looking to continue the trend this summer with a 1st place finish. Stay tuned for more details, including links to streaming media during the event.

General Meeting January 28th
The General Team meeting we have scheduled for tomorrow, Monday, Jan 28th @ 7 pm will now be held in Carver 205. It is a larger room to support the new members we met at Clubfest last week. Hopefully we will see a lot of new faces at this meeting.
Also, Cory and myself won't be attending the meeting as we have an outreach event that night. Zach will be officiating the proceedings and Moriah will cover financial and outreach announcements. Hope the semester is starting off well for everyone.
President, Team PrISUm
Team PrISUm is back in action. We have a lot of work to do, and a great mix of new and experienced team members. Anyone curious to learn more about being on the team is invited to visit, regardless of major or interest.
We are nearly finished with the overhaul of our servers. We have a new email system, web server, and file server. We are still putting together our new CAD file server, with the invaluable help from our friends at Autodesk.
We are currently upgrading our servers, so expect periodic outages. If you would like to contact us regarding sponsorship, outreach, or just general information you may send email to djbell at iastate dot edu.
Team PrISUm is taking a few weeks off for winter break. We've been hard at work designing Project 12, to be completed just over a year from now. The team has decided to build on our success of P11 Hyperion and build another 3 wheeled car, to be lighter and more efficient than ever. Race regulations for ASC 2014 have been released and we are happy to announce that some of the new rules require some of the innovations presented by Team PrISUm in our last car.
FSGP 2013 has also been announced. This coming summer we will head to Austin, TX to the Circuit of the Americas, a bona fide Formula One race track.
Stay tuned for more announcements.
