In 2022, we introduced a new way for students to showcase their work in preparing for the Energy Breakthrough - by allowing students in the puscharts and secondary HPV events to submit their Display and Presentation virtually by video. We received some incredible submissions from our teams last year, so we’ve decided to do it again! Check out our Top ten tips for your virtual Display and Presentation.

How it’s helped them get through high school, make life-long friends, inspired their career choices, and even start their own community teams so they can continue the racing long after their last Maryborough checked flag has been flown.

These young adults were there day-and-night-and-day for this year’s Breakthrough, and the reason why is pretty special: part community service, part reconnaissance as KidzFlip prepares for a tilt at the Energy Breakthrough in 2019.
