ABOUT THE ENERGY BREAKTHROUGH

Since 1991, the Energy Breakthrough has provided opportunities for students, teachers, parents and local industry to work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine or innovation in technology that will represent an ‘energy breakthrough’.

The 2024 Energy Breakthrough event will be held from Wednesday 20th to Sunday 24th of November 2024 in Maryborough, Victoria.

Teams of students can participate in Robotics, Junkyard Challenge, Pushcarts, Human Powered Vehicles (HPVs) and Energy Efficient Vehicles (EEVs).

The program is unique in that all teams must compete across three areas of assessment:

  1. Design and Construction,
  2. Display and Presentation and
  3. Trials.

The Energy Breakthrough is a joint initiative of the Country Education Partnership (CEP) and the Central Goldfields Shire Council (CGSC). Learn more about the Energy Breakthrough >
