Scottow Goblins

Laura, Monday 19th June, 2017


Over 250 pupils from 25 primary school teams travelled from various areas of Norfolk and the bordering counties, to battle it out to become crowned as the overall winner. Each team’s cars and driving skills were put to the test at Scottow Enterprise Park competing in a slalom, drag race and sprint event during the course of the day, but the skilled team at Great Ellingham Primary School walked away as the overall winners.

 

Jeremy Way, CEO of Greenpower Education Trust enthused, ‘From day one Norfolk has embraced the IET Formula Goblin project.  The amazing support from our sponsor companies and partner organisations gave the event a real positive community feel. This has allowed us to run such a successful event which has ignited passion in the participants for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) related careers later on in life.’ 

 

‘The racing was extremely close between all teams. It’s clear to see that the pupils and teachers have fully immersed themselves into the project. We really are looking forward to returning to Norfolk next year, with more primary schools, and potentially including a race for the secondary school category, IET Formula 24.’

 

Alongside Scottow Enterprise Park kindly providing a fantastic venue, the following companies and organisations supported the inaugural event; Educator Solutions, Town Close School, Norse Group, Alan Boswell Group, Barhale, Dyno Group, Together Accounting, Aviation Academy Norwich, Cooper BMW, BMW i, Ben Burgess, MLM, New Anglia Advanced Manufacturing & Engineering (NAAME).

 

We would also like to thank all of the volunteers that helped with the event on the day, without your help we would not have been able to run such a successful event.
