Student-Run Events, May 2015

Members of Iowa State University’s “Team PrISUm” solar car are participating in a five-day tour across the state of Iowa this week. “Team PrISUm is a student-run organization first established in 1989 by the campus’ chapter of Tau Beta Pi. The group first competed in the GM Sunrayce in 1990 and according to its website, PrISUm is the only team that has competed in every cross country American solar car race.”
