P7 Goblin Racing

This week P7 have started to prepare for the Goblin Racing project. During this project the children will build, design and race an electric car. This encourages teamwork and develops a wide range of skills across the curriculum. This will culminate in racing our car at Grampian Transport Museum in June . A Goblin Kit Car takes around 15 hours to build and can be dismantled and rebuilt each year with a new team of children who can compete at Greenpower race days. We will be supported by engineers from Subsea 7 who will help us along the way . The story begins here so keep an eye on the website, social media and The Buzz for regular updates.

“We have enjoyed building the car and it was great to compete against other schools’ cars in Washington. As a result of the project we now know more about engineering, working together as a team, listening to others and sharing ideas.” Goblin team members, Cleadon Academy, Sunderland
