At the Roseland Academy, there is a variety of extracurricular activities. Clubs such as Green Power incorporate many elements of stem (science, technology, engineering and maths) and include hands on activities and productive work.
Green power meetings are held on Wednesday lunchtimes, and after school. It invites students to build an electric car, and race it at RAF St Morgen. It requires dedication, hard work, and enhances team building skills. It is particularly outstanding to see so many students accepting a challenge with such enthusiasm and enjoyment.
The car has to meet race regulations, as well as be aerodynamic, strong, fast and last throughout two ninety minute races. I am pleased to say that we now have a car that is up, running and ready to race.
I should like to close by thanking all of my fellow team members for their participation, and Mr Seyler for making this project happen, and giving students such as myself an excellent opportunity.
