Future Engineers Create Goblin Car

Future Engineers Create Goblin Car

An enthusiastic group of Year 6 girls have been putting their practical skills to the test by taking part in some engineering work after school on Mondays.

The Goblin Car is an electrically powered go-cart which was delivered to the pupils in a box in many parts. Over the last 8 weeks, the girls have used the various tools needed to turn a box of bits into a go-cart!

Nuts, bolts, electrical components and greasy wheel bearings all came together to create a vehicle that, much to their delight, they were able to drive around the playground.

They had to navigate around a slalom course, a straight line speed test and even managed not to knock down all the cones. The girls were really inspired and are looking forward to getting involved in any future projects.

See some photos of the Goblin Car in our photo gallery.
