Greenpower Education Trust, a UK based charity that inspires young people about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) has now entered a national partnership for 2017 with BMW i, the sustainable mobility division of German car giant, BMW.
The support that will be provided by BMW i will allow the Greenpower Education Trust to support and inspire more young people to think about careers in all STEM subjects.
Over 180 students from 17 primary school teams travelled from various areas of both Hampshire and Sussex, to battle it out to become crowned as the overall winner at the first IET Formula Goblin event of the 2017 season at HMS Excellent. Each team completed in a slalom, drag race and sprint event during the course of the day, but results ended in a three way tie between St Mary’s School Clymping, Pennthorpe School and Funtington Primary school.
We are pleased to announce that we have been able to confirm dates for the joint Goblin and IET Formula 24 at Ford Dunton (Essex) for Saturday 1st July.
We have also been able to confirm a new venue for the Luton Goblin event, which will be moving to Luton Sixth Form College, and the event will be taking place on Saturday 29th April.
We look forward to seeing you there!
