Buy a solar panel!
We are a team of students from the University of Twente that is designing, building and racing a high-tech solar powered boat. This way, Solar Boat Twente encourages environmental awareness by the application of renewable energy in the maritime sector.
The coming year a multidisciplinary team of dedicated and enthusiastic students of the University of Twente will focus on building a reliable solar boat. As a team we are enterprising, team workers, interested in technology, progressive, caring for the environment, competitive and of course we are passionate about building a solar boat. Together with our partners we aim to push the limits of technological innovations, in order to embrace a great challenge: designing and building the motorboat of tomorrow.
In 2019 we will be competing in the Solar Sport One competition. During this competition we will race against other solar boats throughout the Netherlands and in Monaco, where the world championship will be held. The previous team achieved a third place there and we are going to take on that challenge again. This year, the third year since Solar Boat Twente is established, a big switch is happening. We are going to use new solar panels with higher efficiencies, with which we can produce up to 35% more energy!
To make that happen we need your help. Each solar cell costs around 25 euros, and we need a bit more than 500. So that's a great expenditure. It would help us a great deal if you would make that possible with us, so we can race with full power over the finish line!
We are Stichting International Student Productions Enschede (InsPE) and we organise productions by and for mainly (international) students and employees of the University of Twente, the Saxion Enschede, the ArteZ Enschede and the ROC of Twente. We want to bring different disciplines and talents together in one big project, to give all these talents a stage to perform. We try to reach as many people as possible by collaborating with many associations, companies and other (student)organisations.
On the 28th, 29th and 30th of April, we will perform West Side Story three times in the Rabozaal of the Schouwburg Hengelo. We are already very busy with preparations and rehearsals! With approximately 75 participants, who are part of the cast, orchestra or help with the decor and clothing, we will do our best to put up a high-level performance. The performance is led by a team of professionals who are very fond of our initiative and they have enthusiastically contributed to other student initiatives. Next, we collaborate with the University of Twente who takes care of the rehearsal locations. Furthermore, the cultural umbrella Apollo and the Student Union give us access to a broad network and they support us financially.
There is a price-tag for organising West Side Story. To create the right atmosphere on the podium, we need to show our artistic talent by making the decor, doing the grime and design the clothing. So, your money will be used to make our cast and stage prettier! What is the target? The target is to raise €2000. This should be enough to purchase fabrics for clothing, make-up and decor necessities. I

Zo'n groot project vraagt veel inzet van iedereen zowel op het toneel als in de orkestbak. Toi, toi.
