Cal Poly’s Prototype Vehicles Laboratory (PROVE Lab) is a student-run non-profit organization that strives to solve real-world issues by pushing the boundaries of engineering. The organization was founded by a group of students with the intention to demonstrate the potential of sustainable transportation and ultimately design and manufacture vehicles that break records and gain widespread recognition. The team's flagship project is Dawn, a purely solar-powered car designed to travel faster than 65 miles per hour.The current project for PROVE is currently Mila, a fully-electric, long-range sports car that will travel over 1000 miles on a single charge, breaking the Guinness World Record and pushing boundaries to address the issue of range anxiety in the electric vehicle industry. In PROVE members gain hands on experience and develop an invaluable engineering toolset while developing immensely impactful projects. All grades, experience levels, and majors are welcome!
