Go Goblins!

Our hard-working DT Club finished the year with a flourish as they took their Goblin car to the GreenPower Goblin Race Day at Perranporth Airfield.

The car is made from a kit supplied by Greenpower Education Trust. This UK-based charity aims to inspire a love of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) through the excitement of motorsport. Over 700 teams, comprising 10,000 pupils, take part across the UK over 30 regional events and a National Final.

Each Goblin car has to be built to exact specifications to ensure it is race-worthy and can only be decorated with reused or recycled materials.

Having rigorously tested the car in the Prep playground, the DT Club pupils were excited to see how it performed under real race conditions.

With a long race, drag races and slalom events taking place throughout the day, it was a brilliant chance to have fun and share in the joy and pride of creating something truly special. In the year of courage, our young drivers certainly shone through with their determination and bravery on the track. The team was also delighted to have received the Sustainable Bodywork Prize.

A huge thanks must go to Mrs Sparkes who works so hard to make this fantastic project possible.
