Teams of keen science students from Clarkson, Merriwa and Somerly Primary Schools were recently invited to Clarkson Community High School for the chance to compete in the “Clarkson Challenge”. In its ninth year, the Clarkson Challenge is an academic problem-solving program in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), where students are set problems to solve using scientific knowledge, technology skills and teamwork, all while following a design process.
We all know that the world is moving towards an energy crisis as fossil fuels begin to run out. Alternative fuels will need to be developed if we are to meet the transport needs of future generations whilst at the same time protecting the environment. Therefore, the idea behind this year’s Clarkson Challenge was to inspire our future scientists to solve this issue by producing an emissions-free solar powered car using sustainable materials and innovative techniques such as 3D printing.
