We were standing in pit lane at last year’s Energy Breakthrough event and we noticed something unique. It was Terang College’s vehicle they had built themselves. The project was designed and led by then Year 11 student Harrison Smith for his Year 12 Product Design and Technology project. With the support of his teammates, they brought this new creation to life and learnt plenty along the way, too. We caught up with the team at Terang College to get the inside story.
They made it! Our first ever team from the Northern Territory, Centralian Senior College Clontarf Academy, enjoyed their first day at the RACV Energy Breakthrough.
As schools enter their final preparations for the 2017 RACV Energy Breakthrough, over 30 students from St. Therese’s Primary School in Bendigo have spent two days with some seasoned Catholic College Bendigo campaigners. With these older students keen to pass on their knowledge to the eager youngsters, RACV EB Pushcarts coordinator Bronte Harrop joined them to see them in action.
It’s 1,500 kilometres from Alice Springs to Maryborough, but it’s just another step on a bigger journey for Centralian Senior College Clontarf Academy team - the first ever team from the Northern Territory to participate in the RACV Energy Breakthrough. Their Team Manager, James McNamee, has quite a history with the event, too.
Following up our recent feature on the Woodleigh School, we've turned the spotlight on the untouchable Queensland team from Ormeau Woods State High School. They swept all before them in a smooth and fast display to take line honours with their pedal and electric powered Energy Efficient Vehicle.
Whilst our teams this week in Australia have been racing to get their entries in as quickly as possible, the Girton Racing Team from Bendigo is in Singapore taking on a very different type of challenge. They're in Singapore for the Shell Eco-Marathon (Asia) and are aiming to cover 900km their vehicle with just one litre of petrol.
Here, Maryborough Education Centre share their final progress report of the year and reflect on a highly enjoyable RACV Energy Breakthrough event. They also say 'farewell' to Doug Marr, a long serving and devoted teacher and team manager.
