St Joseph’s Primary School students Fraser Cleary and Darcy Myers prepare their cart for the competition.
Coming second in last year’s Energy Breakthrough competition was not a good enough result for the students at St Joseph’s Primary School.
This year the Energy Breakthrough team of 12 aims to take the top spot with their newly modified cart.
The Energy Breakthrough competition, in Maryborough from today to Saturday, is an event set up to teach children to examine and use the latest technology while considering its impact on the environment and the way people live locally and globally.
The teams take part in different challenges with one person pushing the cart and the other in the driver’s seat steering it.
This year, the students started from scratch with their cart and made it 12kg lighter than the year before.
The car is made from all recycled materials, including a kitchen sink.
A new special bar called the Montana bar, named after a student, was fitted to increase endurance during the challenges.
