We both like greek mythology and recently did a project in class on greek mythology. We chose the team name HELIOS because he was the god of the Sun in Greek mythology. He was thought to ride a golden chariot which brought the Sun across the skies each day from the east to the west. The name is appropriate for this solar project.
