The Project will focus on learning and using Computer Aided Design (CAD) to develop The Kit Car’s bodywork, specifically on its overall design and aerodynamics.
The Race Team (young engineers) will assemble The Kit Car chassis and components using detailed instructions and support from The Project Team (adult volunteers).
Once the chassis and components are installed and the bodywork design is complete The Race Team will then build the bodywork. Shaping and forming the chosen materials of construction.
The Project Team will help with transport of the The Kit Car to race events. The Race Team (young engineers) are then responsible for driving The Kit Car and any pit stop work or maintenance.
Greenpower Education Trust
Greenpower Education Trust are a UK based charity with an outstanding track record in kick starting careers in engineering. They help unlock potential and spark enthusiasm for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) through the excitement of motorsport.
Greenpower events are open to teams of students aged 9 to 25 who are responsible for all activities at the race event, and supported by volunteers to realise their vision for a winning vehicle. The Greenpower challenges have three categories:
IET Formula Goblin (ages 9 – 11)
IET Formula 24 (ages 11 – 16)
IET Formula 24+ (ages 16 – 25)
We will be focussing on the IET Formula 24 and Young Engineers aged between 11 and 16.
Help us promote and raise awareness of the project to kids, adults, teachers, local companies and anyone who may be interested.
Join our group of volunteers to help run the project in the workshop and at events. Please get in touch if you would like to volunteer.
Financial contributions will help with buying the kit and keeping the project running. Its a great opportunity to promote a local STEM project. Various branding and promotional opportunities available.
