Derby High Announces Their First Greenpower Team
Eleven aspiring Engineers at Derby High School have joined together to form the school’s very first Greenpower team. The students, all currently in the Lower Sixth in the Sixth Form, are planning to build their very own electric car this academic year. The design is currently underway and is being led by student Alex Hill, currently studying A levels in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry. Alex is designing the car as part of his Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Alex said “this is a fantastic opportunity for me to demonstrate my leadership skills. Ever since I was a young boy I’ve wanted to build and race a car. Having Greenpower on my CV when I apply to university will help me stand out and is something to be immensely proud of”.
