Join Cleveland Institution of Engineers for their October Lecture presented by Professor David Sims-Williams, Professor of Engineering at Durham University. 

Every two years teams from around the world try to cross the Australian continent with cars powered only by the sun. While solar power means that the cars are “zero carbon”, the real relevance is in the engineering required to create a car that drives at highway speed on half the power of a hairdryer.

Head to the Centuria Building at Teesside University for 5.30pm to enjoy tea and coffee and the lecture starts at 6pm.
