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.
