Australia trip helps MSU student jump-start solar car club

December 27, 2017View for printing

Most people would be surprised to encounter futuristic, sunlight-propelled cars zooming through the remote, red desert of the Australian Outback. But for Montana State University junior Levi Allery, they were the reason he went Down Under.

An electrical engineering major from Kalispell, Allery recently spent two weeks interning at the World Solar Challenge, traveling with 40 student teams as they raced their solar-powered vehicles along a nearly 2,000-mile-long route from Australia's north coast to its south.
