Kit Car Challenge

‘When I grow up I want to make cars.’ Why Wait! Let’s make a car now!

Year 6 pupils have been working with Mike, our partner engineer, to construct an electric vehicle from a kit. This Eco-car was constructed over a number of weeks with all Y6 taking a turn to use the construction manual and tools. We enjoyed the experience of being engineers, following plans and problem solving when things did not quite go to plan!

We created an outer shell made of recycled single use plastics and took our vehicle to Gateshead sports stadium where we raced it against 39 other similar vehicles from schools around the region.
