First day of the 2017 RACV Energy Breakthrough kicked off in true fashion – team registrations and wristbands!
Once we got the formalities out of the way, it was time to get down to business.
Pushcarts, HPV (Primary) and Try-athlon completed their assessments in Scrutineering, Design & Construction and Display & Presentation. Each of these elements are worth 25% of a team’s overall score. These elements are crucial to a student’s learning in the lead up the event, and gives them the opportunity to demonstrate their experience, knowledge and skills to a select team of judges.

HPV Class A – Thursday Night Practice Session
Our first day wrapped up with our HPV Class A’s taking to the CFA Track for a two-hour practice session to determine grid positions for the 14-hour trial, that kicks off tomorrow at 12pm.
White Hills Primary School topped the leaderboard of the trials, recording a lap time of 1:41:227 for the 1.1km track circuit.
