About the Workshop

  • Learners build miniature electric cars, then use these in a competitive team challenge. 

  • Teams fine tune their cars following the engineering design cycle of design, build, test and improve. 

  • Teams then investigate the effects of powering their cars with varying quantities of electrical energy, aiming to get their car to stop closest to a target distance. 

This session features as part of the longer Green Drive workshop.
