School from Heule builds electric karts for Greenpower Challenge

    Maybe they will ride in the grand final in England later. The trolley should not be particularly fast, but it should be as energy-efficient as possible. Geert Blomme, technical advisor – coordinator Athena Campus Heule: It’s an endurance race, so we have to get as far as possible with our battery. We’re going to have to put it on board tactically. Tire pressure, aerodynamics, weight… We already have a few ideas. Where we are allowed to adjust, we will do that.”

    With the entire project they are trying to get young people interested in STEM, for a technically oriented course of study. The students are also introduced to business management and they also take care of their own communication via social media.
