H.E. Anna Raduchowska-Borchwicz, Ambassador of Poland to South Africa hosted the students at her residence where they made a presentation of their unique vehicle. They placed 6th in the Australia challenge in 2015 and received the best performing team and safest car awards.

Many of the students are in South Africa for the first time and have hosted several workshops on photo voltaic technology. South African climate is very conducive to solar energy technologies.

Ambassador Raduchowska-Borchwicz in her welcome remarks wished the team well and encouraged them as the generation that will mitigate climate change, the environment and energy.
