Greenpower IET Goblin Electric Car - Primary School Competition

In collaboration with the Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC) UK and the British Council with the Going Global Gender Equality Partnership, we recently launched a new competition giving Primary schools in the Nottingham area the chance to win a Greenpower IET Goblin electric cart kit

The Greenpower Education Trust objective is to advance the education of young people in the areas of sustainable engineering and technology. The Greenpower IET Goblin electric cart kit is aimed at primary school children aged 9-11, Supported by a group of researchers from the PEMC group, the children assemble the cart during a 10 week, hour-long after school club. Support is also provided to the school for preparing their cart to participate in national Greenpower race events.
