Maarten van Poppelen is a student in mechanical engineering at the University of Twente. Last year, he was part of Solar Team Twente, a team that showed an incredible performance in the World Solar Challenge in Australia. Solar Team Twente took the second place by finishing only 3.5 minutes later than the winners. Furthermore, Solar Team Twente won the Innovation Award.
Apart from this extraordinary achievement, the members of Solar Team Twente have learned a lot of their experiences in 1.5 years. Maarten will not only talk about manufacturing a solar car, but also about what you can achieve as a student with ambition and the advantages of his personal development.
