Calling all teachers: do you have curriculum resources that you use to support student's learning through the Energy Breakthrough? Yes! Great! We'd love to hear about what you use and how you use it with the hope that we can share these curriculum resources and ideas across all of the 155 schools that participate in the EB program each year. It's all part of our "Curriculum Resource Round-Up" being led by program partner, the Country Education Partnership, which will feature a Webinar on Thursday 9 May 2019.
New year, new rules! After publishing a set of draft rule changes under consideration last year, our Lead Scrutineers Michael McTigue and Tim White have gathered feedback, deliberated, discussed and now finalised the 2019 Energy Breakthrough Vehicle Specifications and Trial Regulations for HPV, EEV and TRYathlon teams.
This year there has been a growing number of enquiries and requests for clarification of our rules relating to “Team Composition” and “Eligibility”. The theme through the vast majority of these enquiries been to do with teams who have been unable to meet the Gender Requirements as specified in the School’s Handbook in section ‘2.3 Team Composition’. This rule requires that in most categories teams have equal participation of males and females.
345 teams from 153 schools. Phew! It's shaping up to be a very BUSY year in schools across Victoria and beyond as they prepare for the 2018 Energy Breakthrough on 21 - 25 November, 2018 in Maryborough, Victoria and we've just published our 2018 Entry Lists.
Well, we've done it. Yep, we've just released the 2017 entry lists for your viewing pleasure - just in time for the school holidays, too!
Since publishing the RACV Energy Breakthrough handbook which includes Vehicle Specification and Trial Regulations and Rules, a number of schools have been quick to express concerns about changes to the seat belt mounting rules and with the power restrictions placed on pedal/electrically EEVs.
It's that time of the year again... School's back and the heat is amongst us, which can only mean one thing. RACV Energy Breakthrough Entries!
The 2016 School's Information Kits are ready for download and are packed full of all the final details teams will need to know for this year’s event.
