On Monday 18th November, a selection of Year 8 pupils were invited to take part in an Energy Quest challenge making capacitor cars. The idea was to build the car first of all and then to race in on the track to see how far it would go.
Over time the pupils were to only charge the car enough to get it a set distance – as told by the visiting engineer. Pupils had to work through a series repeats to get the best results possible, and on occasion had to alter the design of the cars. All pupils invited were fully engaged and all showed they could be engineers of the future.
