Energy Breakthrough

The RACV Energy Breakthrough is an exciting program designed to provide opportunities for students, teachers, parents and local industry to work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine, or innovation in technology that will represent an ‘energy breakthrough’.

The Energy Breakthrough program aims to…

  • ​Provide an excellent technology project for students from Prep to VCE level

  • Encourage young people to explore solutions to environmental and transport issues

  • Provide an opportunity for schools and communities to work and learn together

  • Provide an opportunity for women and girls to participate in what has traditionally been a ‘male’ dominated area of the curriculum

  • Be a fun program with real world challenges

  • Offer students opportunities to explore and address vehicle design, driving skills and vehicle and passenger safety issues
