Millions suffer from it

every year.

Help us find a cure for range anxiety.


Contact us below to see how you can help! We meet on Sundays at 11am in Engineering IV - Room 322.

See you there!

The solar car is nearly done.

Now's the time to get a head start for that moment, 2 seconds after the solar record is broken, when everyone asks... "what next?". PROVE has a new project to start, one that will show the world what the future of the car can be.


We want to build an electric car that can travel 1000 miles on a single charge, at freeway speeds.


Is it even possible? Let's find out. 


We're going to need about a million dollars. We're going to need some technology that may not quite exist yet. We're going to need to live up to our name and prototype prototype prototype - make things, break things, make them better, until it works. 

This is not for everyone. We only want people who are going to lose sleep over how to do something incredible. Only join this project if somewhere, somehow, you want to change the world - good things will follow. 


Be part of the next generation of PROVE Lab. Integrate it into your program with independent study credits, senior projects, grad projects, paid research positions, paid school outreach positions, internships with our partners, and more. 

 We need innovators. Interior designers. Exterior designers. Marketing geniuses. Life cycle analysts. 3D printing wizards. Filmmakers. Leaders. 

Basically, anyone that wants to create something exciting, something to get the attention of the world to say "HEY! LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO!". 

You don't need to be an expert. You do need to show up, and keep showing up, and eventually together we'll achieve something amazing.
