Greenpower's annual electric car challenge invites teams to design, build and race an electric car in nationwide competitions. Renishaw has supported the organisiation for more than 10 years.
Driving engineering through sustainability
The goal of the Greenpower Education Trust is to help advance young people's understanding of sustainable engineering and technology. Renishaw has supported its Greenpower championship for more than a decade, even hosting races at its sites in Gloucestershire and South Wales.
Each year, Greenpower's electric car challenge invites students, their teachers and industry mentors to design, build and race an electric car in a national competition. Greenpower today involves more than 500 schools and 800 students from across the UK.
In running the event, Greenpower aims to:
- Present engineering as a rewarding and dynamic career choice
- Highlight the importance of engineering and STEM subjects in solving problems relating to sustainability
- Form stronger links between education, industry and community
- Promote social inclusion
And we're extremely proud to say that the Renishaw Greenpower team of apprentice and graduate engineers won both first and second places in the 2016 event's Silverline Corporate Challenge for business.
