Thursday 2018 – Wet Weather, Assessments, Practice and … um, more wet weather

Thursday of the 2018 Energy Breakthrough was full of excitement, anticipation and … WET WEATHER!

In true Energy Breakthrough style, we watched as our Pushcarts, HPV (Primary) and TRYathlon teams took part in their Scrutineering, Display & Presentation and Design & Construction assessments. These three assessments play a vital part in a team’s overall score – making up a huge 25%. They also play in important role to each student’s understanding in the lead up the event. It also provides them with the opportunity to discuss their learning and knowledge to our judging panels.

  • Pushcart teams start the day off with the Endurance Event down on the VicRoads Track, followed by Display & Presentation and finish off the day with the Obstacle Course.
  • TRYathlon teams begin the day with Time Trials on the back straight at Track 1, Obstacle Rally and the Night Practice down at the VicRoads Track from 9pm.
