The IET Formula Goblin Project aims to inspire young people aged 9-11 into engineering in a fun and innovative way. The Goblin kit comes flat packed and with a step by step manual, to talk the team through the construction in an easy to understand manner. Building the Goblin introduces basic mechanics to all team members involved and once completed they have a fully functional car to take part in various events across the country. Please visit the Q&A page to see what an event entails. You can visit this events page that will give you the seasons race calendar and to register your school please click on the orange button below. Once you have received an approval email from us you are free to register your individual cars.
In schools the construction can be easily integrated into the curriculum to illustrate key areas such as friction, materials, electricity, maths and design technology. The project also encourages parental participation during clubs and on event days. Many schools and youth groups also gain support from local businesses that are keen to get involved, forging strong bonds between local organisations.
