This workshop explores the future of transport, in particular electric vehicles, over a full day.
Working in teams, students will learn how to construct an electronic circuit that will be used to power their car.
When designing their car, students must consider the shape, material choices, and structure.
The activity encourages students to use a wide range of skills and consolidates knowledge in the KS2 or KS3 Science and D&T curriculums. The workshop is differentiated to suit age ranges and ability.
STEMworks will provide all materials for the workshop.
Minimum of 15 participants, maximum of 36 participants.
Pricing starts from £450, plus costs for consumables. Charges can be subsidised by a sponsor/company.
