Do you think you are the next Lewis Hamilton or Adrian Newey? Then Greenpower might be just for you!
Our mission is to demonstrate the importance of engineering, and associated STEM subjects, to solve the problems faced by societies today particularly in the areas of sustainability.”
Over recent years, Emmanuel has had a very successful Greenpower race team, led by Mr Mustard. As part of the Formula 24 and Formula 24+ race series, teams of students, aged between 11 and 18, design, build and race an electric car. In a very similar manner to Formula 1, cars must pass a strict scrutineering process, to check the safety and design requirements of the car before it can be raced. The entire car is designed and built by students after school, and we are currently on the second improved model of the car, which has a more streamline fibreglass body for the 2014 race season.
Every year, the best cars from around the country meet at the National Final at Goodwood Race Circuit. If you are in Year 9 or above, please see Mr Mustard or come along to Room 11 on a Monday evening.
The Greenpower team would not be possible without the support of the Emmanuel College PTA.
