We are the all-female RIT Hot Wheelz Formula SAE Hybrid Team.
The RIT Hot Wheelz team is a Formula SAE racing team dedicated to professionalism, mentorship, experiential learning, and preparing women for leadership roles through a real world design and build experience.
We participate in the SAE Formula Hybrid competition to showcase the strong hands-on design, manufacturing, and project management expertise, as well as general problem-solving skills, that women can bring to the table for a complex engineering project.
We believe in creating opportunities for all members of our team so that they can explore their interests. Our unique team fosters an environment of learning and teaching; members have the opportunity to try something new every meeting and mentorship is highly encouraged. Learning from each other in a hands-on, practical application not only emphasizes concepts that have been taught in class but bonds our team and creates friendships that last beyond race day.
