Event description

Description

The University of Salford invites you to attend the regional launch of the Greenpower Electric Car Challenge.

We are thrilled to announce the University is launching its participation in the Greenpower Electric Car Challenge. At the launch you will hear from hear from our ICZ Director of Engineering & Environments and top industry professionals from Prodrive, Siemens and Jaguar Land Rover about how the scheme operates and how and why to get involved.

Continuing after the launch event, this collaboration will see students from across the University and from schools with the region work in multi-disciplinary teams to design, build and race single-seat electric cars. There will be opportunities for all students during this exciting project in everything from business and marketing to aerodynamics, graphic design and autonomous systems. Greenpower Teams compete against industry teams (including JLR, Lockheed, Cummins, and Perkins) and other Universities from across the world, affording crucial industry-relevant experience for the students.

On the day we are excited to have a number of Greenpower cars on display from both Jaguar Land Rover and the team at Sandbach High School and College, who are Greenpower International Champions 2016.

Head Teachers and Teachers are invited to stay on after the morning session and take part in a focused workshop to explore the suitable deployment model, the proposed funding models, available curriculum and how you could implement and run the Greenpower Challenge in schools. Please note that school representatives will therefore have an end time of 3pm

We hope you will be able to join us for the launch of this exciting project. If you would like any further information please don’t hesitate to contact us on events@salford.ac.uk or call 0161 295 5275
