Energy Breakthrough

Energy Breakthrough

For the last two years our Gr 5-6 students have had the opportunity to participate in the Energy Breakthrough Challenge at Maryborough. 

 

Before the event our students face many learning challenges including: writing letters to seek sponsorship for the vehicle, designing and building their car, building their fitness level so they are physically prepared for the challenge, learning to work as a team and organising their academic presentation.

 

Over the  three days of the event, our students deliver an academic presentation, are put through their paces during a lengthy scrutineering process and then ride their vehicle for 14 hours, to see how many kilometres they can cover. The commitment and good humour of our team is truly amazing and they all represent our school with distinction.
