The Weald Greenpower Car team is an after-school club that is run by parents and volunteers who mostly have an engineering/science/technology background but anyone with a desire to help the team is welcome. Our team competes in a series of races organised by the Greenpower Education Trust. Watch this video to find out more about Greenpower and to see us in action:
Our cars Bluebird, X and Purple Predator competed in the 2019 Greenpower International Finals at Silverstone. Firebird, a car designed and built by former Weald students and driven by one of our sixth formers, won the F24+ championship. You can watch a video about the final here:
Students in The Weald Greenpower team learn various engineering, electrical and computing skills and have the opportunity to make decisions and take risks in a safe environment. This can inspire them to pursue technical careers - some former team members are currently at university studying Mechanical and Motorsport Engineering whilst others are apprentices with leading engineering companies.
The Weald Greenpower Car team is open to students of all ages from Year 7 to Sixth Form and to adult volunteers. For more information please contact: [email protected]
