These outreach activities (www.engineering.unsw.edu.au/energy-engineering/outreach-program) of the UNSW School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy and, in the case of Sunswift, also of the UNSW Faculty of Engineering, seek to engage the interest of students at all levels of education, including K-12 and tertiary.

SUNSWIFT is the University of New South Wales’ student run solar car racing team. It is an effective outreach activity for engineering in general and for photovoltaics and energy efficiency engineering in particular.

The Team was supported in its entry for the 2013 and 2015 World Solar Challenge and will be supported for the 2017 challenge by the UNSW node.
