We have been working towards delivering our project with one of the world leaders in engine technology for ‘everything that is large’
Cummins - www.cummins.com is a world leader in everything large when it comes to engines and they have one of their global manufacturing plants at Daventry. They do a lot of work with education and have embraced our activities as part of their engagement with schools programme.
RACE Day - Sunday 24 June - This years event will be available subject to demand at their Daventry Plant. This will be a race day unlike any other we have offered before and will offer all our schemes, a showcase day, with the flexibility to arrive and participate or prepare and race your cars as you have done in previous years. We will also have our marine challenge solar boats initiative as an interactive project to be done on the day. To do this Cumings will be clearing their car parks and event area for a weekend, making race day Sunday 24 June. We need to know numbers now. Please email confirmation of attendance including;
Type of participation – FS Electric, FS IC, Solar Boats Challenge, Gravity Racer Demonstration
Numbers of pupils
Schools Marine Challenge
This project has more truly evolved to become a renewable project based around boats and as such we are changing its name to Schools Renewables.
We would like to see schools from anywhere that have participated in the solar boats challenge arriving to this event.
Bring your solar energy boats which have been built as part of the challenge as well as pupils have not built a boat as we will have 20 kit boats with Cummins apprentices to be built on the day.
What to expect at Cummins on 24 June.....
All the excitement you expect from an EYF event day along the lines of Silverstone, Plais Menia, Bluewater etc but with the added features of being able to tour a global engineering leader in land and marine power plant. We will have our FS track, solar boats pool, marquees and pit area, as well as access to the Cummins plant and restaurant and it is only 3 junctions away from Silverstone on the M1
