Fwd: Evolocity electric vehicle Club – Wednesdays 3-4pm

Each Wednesday from 15th March onwards students interested in being
involved in designing, building and racing an electric vehicle with 2, 3 or
more wheels can come to P14 from 3-4pm where they will have support to kick
off their 2017 designs.

Please note the Evolovity 2017 launch event notice below, I’m aware this is
late notice for people so unlikely it will work for some – however would be
great for all students to be at this event.

*EVolocity Electric Vehicle Competition for Schools: Canterbury Launch
Event, March 16. *

EVolocity delivers practical education on electric transportation through:

· A project based learning programme in high schools in which teams
of students are equipped with an electric motor kit and, with tutoring and
a series of hands-on workshops throughout the year, they design and build
their very own electric vehicles. In most cases this will form part of
their NCEA technology, physics, science or education for sustainability
studies.

· Running public electric vehicle test drive programmes in
association with our end of year schools competition.

*Join us at Ara Institute of Canterbury in the Imagitech Theatre
from 5.30pm to 7.00pmon Thursday 16 March. This is an opportunity to find
out more about EVolocity, meet Ara Engineering tutors who will be running
the bootcamps, and get an update on the state of the electric vehicle
movement in NZ.*
