We’ve compiled a 2024 National HPV Events Calendar

We've compiled a national 2024 HPV and EEV events calendar to help demonstrate the breadth and depth of interest in human powered and energy efficient vehicles across Australia. These include events in Victoria, South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia. We at the Energy Breakthrough see these 'other events' as great learning and capacity building opportunities - especially for young people - but for designers, builders, riders, race officials, volunteers and more.

New Curriculum Resources for incorporating EB into your classroom

We've been seeking real-world examples of how schools have been incorporating the Energy Breakthrough into their curriculum and have collated the best examples right here on our new 'Curriculum / EB In Schools' page. These have now been packaged into a new web page that covers EB in schools from Primary School to VCE level. Special thank you to those schools for sharing their resources: Avoca Primary School (Pushcarts and Human Powered Vehicles); Katamatite Primary School (Pushcarts and Robotics); Crusoe College, Bendigo & Weeroona College, Bendigo (Human Powered Vehicles / Energy Breakthrough as a STEM / Technology elective) and Bendigo Senior Secondary College (VCE Product Design & Technology Units 1-4). We hope that through this new resource it will spark some ideas about how YOU can incorporate Energy Breakthrough into your school!

2023 Energy Breakthrough a success

Phew! The 2023 Energy Breakthrough has wrapped up for 2023! We are first and foremost an education event. Students are learning by doing first-hands across many curriculum areas. The racing is the flashy bit, but there’s a lot of other assessments going on, too. We were early pulse check from schools is that the new 'One Track' format and new event schedule was a smooth experience. We hope everyone is enjoying a chance to recharge as the school year winds down.

A decade of transformation at Cranbourne West Primary School

Way back in 2013, Cranbourne West Primary School decided to get involved in the Energy Breakthrough for the very first time. With just an old vehicle, and very little community awareness and support, one team travelled to Maryborough, where they got their first taste of a program that now sees students come back, well after their primary school days are over. Fast forward ten years, and Cranbourne West Primary School is now a mainstay of the Energy Breakthrough, with three teams set to hit the track this month!
