POSTPONED – tentative new date 9 March 2021: Canterbury Launch
As we have moved up to level 2 as our COVID19 response once again, this affects our ability to run our launch event at the University of Canterbury tomorrow. We are therefore going to postpone until we are in level one again.
EVolocity is a secondary school programme that champions project learning and promotes careers in mechanical engineering, electronics, programming and clean tech. It stimulates creativity and develops rich links to industry mentors, universities and polytechs. Students experience the thrill of building their own electric vehicle and then racing it against other schools at the end of the year!
Join us for a get together to learn more about the impact EVolocity is having on this generation in your community and around the country!
