Motor Vehicle Students from South Staffordshire College have supported an event at the famous Mallory Park Race Circuit.
Ten Level 3 Motor Vehicle students from the College’s Tamworth Campus went along to offer their assistance at the Greenpower electric car test day, organised in conjunction with The Staffordshire STEM Centre.
The event involved schools from all over the country and the students assisted with scrutineering, pit lane supervision, emergency recovery and safety aspects, making sure the event ran smoothly for all competitors and spectators.
The Greenpower Education Trust promotes sustainable engineering to young people and Kevin Ford, Co-ordinator for Greenpower, thanked the South Staffordshire College students for their fantastic assistance. “I hope they enjoyed the day and felt it was a worthwhile experience. On behalf of the Staffordshire STEM Centre I thank them for all their input during the day”, he said.
Tony Meeney, Motor Vehicle Co-ordinator at South Staffordshire College, was suitably proud of his students, saying “They all had a great time, providing a valuable and essential service, and we are hoping to support future events, with the possibility of getting involved in helping schools to build their cars.”
