This is an exciting project with numerous learning opportunities!
Goblin kit cars are designed for primary schools and provide a starting point for involvement in basic mechanics, engineering and design.
We have been provided with a battery powered buggy in kit form to build and eventually race against other participating schools. Eight of our Y6 pupils have been given the opportunity to take part in our school Greenpower Goblin Challenge and build the buggy.
The children have learnt a lot from their 'hands on' experience of engineering as they have reconstructed the likes of the front axle and steering column of a 'go-kart' type vehicle. The children worked extremely well as a team and developed their problem solving skills in the process.
This is a brilliant project and we at Ferrars Junior School are very pleased to be taking part. Please look through the photo gallery to see a little bit about what we have achieved.
