EVolocity currently runs two high school programmes. Our flagship programme, the EVolocity Electric Vehicle Build is now in it’s sixth year, and our new EVolocity Innovation Lab programme, launched in May 2021.
EVolocity Electric Vehicle Build
High school teams are equipped with an electric bike componentry kit. During the course of the year, guided by teachers and mentors, they design & build their own electric vehicles. At the end of the year they bring their vehicles to a motorsport park for some fun competitions. Winners from each regional event go on to the national event. The end of year event also features demonstrations and test drives of electric bikes, go karts, motor bikes and cars, educating the public as to what is available and dispelling myths around the performance capabilities of EVs.
EVolocity Innovation Lab
The new EVolocity Innovation Lab, sponsored by MeloYelo, is an opportunity for students to take their inventiveness to new heights by conceptualising and designing original features that will enhance real-life e-bike riding experiences. Selected teams will have the opportunity to develop their product and produce a MeloYelo e-bike that will be auctioned off. Proceeds will be split between the team and EVolocity.
