Welcome to 2011! Firstly, we hope that you have managed to stay safe and dry during this extraordinary Australian summer of floods and tropical cyclones. Many of the towns across regional Victoria – including the areas directly around Maryborough – who participate in the Energy Breakthrough each year have been hit hard by unprecedented amounts of rain and flash flooding. We hope they are able to overcome these great obstacles to join us in November.

As we look forward to our 2011 RACV Energy Breakthrough, we will be expanding the Holden Mentor Program for Primary schools participating in the Human Powered Vehicle categories. We’re also looking to further develop our popular Energy Expo too.

On track, we are currently fleshing out the concepts behind two new classes: “All-Electric” and “All-Petrol” to join the hybrid teams, as well as aiming for renewed growth in the Pushcart and Innovations in Technology events.

It’s going to be a tremendous year – stay tuned for the School’s Handbook for everything you need to know which will be available in March.

Entries will open in March, 2011, too!
