Power to Drive In-School Workshop

Students learn about energy, with a quick overview of how electricity is generated and used. They are then given the challenge to build an electric car and see how far they can travel on a single charge.

Power to Drive with Electric Cars

  • Upper key stage 2 and key stage 3

  • 40 mins - 2 hours

  • 30 students per session

  • Rotate classes throughout the day (match your timetable) 

  • Or add more workshops to deliver a full drop down day to a whole year group

Core skills:

  • Listening

  • Problem Solving

  • Staying Positive

  • Aiming High

  • Teamwork

Session Activities:

Miniature electric cars are built to demonstrate some of the principles of gears, before the young people then use the cars to understand the relationship between voltage input and distance travelled. 

 

They then use this knowledge to perform a series of tests to draw up a graph, and a line of best fit if applicable, with the intention of getting their team's car to stop closest to a specified distance.

We need a large classroom, hall or other clear space to deliver this session.

Timetables

Many of our workshops can be combined to give students a more in depth and impactful experience, for example, by creating a whole year drop down day. Example timetables are below, but all timetables are designed to fit with your school day. Our team can recommend workshops which complement each other so please get in touch to discuss.
