Greenpower Education Trust

Description

Greenpower Education Trust is a UK based charity which gets young people enthusiastic about science and engineering by challenging them to design, build and race an electric car.

We supply age appropriate Kit Cars, which can be built in school, college or elsewhere and raced at motorsport venues at Greenpower organised events. Alternatively, older participants can design and build their own car to our regulations. The Greenpower challenge uses the excitement of motorsport to inspire young people to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

We work with over 700 teams throughout the UK and hold 35+ regional events and an International Final every year.
More than 10,000 students take part each year, from primary school age through to university.

Project has lots of educational benefits as well as developing children's skills of teamwork and problem solving. Venue didn't offer a lot of shade so a gazebo would be desirable for hot weather. Event is well organised but there is some standing about to do, waiting between races. (September 2019 - Primary School)




Excellent organisation on the day, all info sent well in advance. (September 2019 - Secondary School)
