What we do
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.
Create a sustainable future
We believe that alternative energy is the future of transportation and that the students of today will pave that path. We are a team of students that want to gain experience with the capabilities and difficulties of non-traditional energy sources so that we can embark on our professional careers with this knowledge and perspective.
Break world records
Our goal is to break records because it pushes hard on our limits of ingenuity and engineering skill. It may seem crazy, and it may seem scary, but we set intimidating goals for our projects to show others that creating a sustainable future is not incompatible with automotive vehicle development and advancement. Rather, it is inevitably possible.
