The Competition

Using the standard kit provided (or you can create your own), you must build a chassis for your car, and you can modify the bodywork using other upcycled materials.

Standard Kit contains:
– Two lollypop sticks
– Plastic straw
– Thin dowel
– Elastic bands

The wheels and body of the car can be made from any upcycled materials of your choice to increase aerodynamics. You will also need to create the team name’s livery (branding/color scheme).

Your vehicle must not be longer than 20cm or wider than 15cm.

Let your engineering minds go into overdrive and get creative in creating the fastest sustainably powered car.

Your car will race over a 20m long straight-line track
