Greenpower Education Trust

Representatives of Cardigan School have qualified for the UK finals of Greenpower, a competition designed to promote sustainable engineering to young people. The national finals are to be held at Goodwood Racecourse in West Sussex on 13th October.


The team – proudly sponsored by Western Solar – did really well this year, placing 8th and 10th in the two regional races they competed in, and are looking forward to what is expected to be a very competitive race on Sunday. The new car project has progressed well with a nearly complete car made by the retiring Yr 11 children. They used new batteries in their most recent race and are hoping they might give the team an edge in the finals.
