Greenpower Education Trust believe that providing young people with an exciting, real life project is the most successful way of sparking an interest in engineering, helping to address the serious skills gap the UK faces in this crucial business sector. To help bridge that gap, we are launching 'Greenpower Mentors'
We're looking for mentors to work alongside our growing Ambassdor network, to help new and exisiting teams during their Greenpower journey.
A hot summer’s day saw over 100 excited and enthusiastic primary school pupils from 14 schools across Cheshire and Staffordshire descend on the Staffordshire Activity Centre, Seighford for the 10th Annual Staffordshire Goblin electric car event.

Saturday 21st May 2016 – the weather wasn’t kind to us on Saturday, but we did manage to avoid a big downpour, the teams weren’t phased and were all in great spirits throughout the day and the rain!
We had a number of brand new teams racing alongside our regular participants and it was great to see how much effort had gone into the project from old and new teams alike – we were lucky to yet again receive a large number of portfolios, all of which were creative and full of all the amazing things the teams had been up to in the build up to race day!
