Did You Know?

  • Our scale model e.dams-Renault Formula E racing car required 200 hours of CAD engineering design and includes every last detail of the real racing car including the charging point, aerial and LED brake light. It was built by a team of 10 experts, over five months!
  • The wheel and tyre assembly was the most challenging component to make, taking 200 hours of research and development to achieve authentic but lightweight and safe units for them kids to handle.
  • Bespoke wheel hub assemblies, wheel wrenches and sound effects were created to complete the experience and make the team activity as lifelike as possible.

Values Learnt:

  • Respect - for each other as team mates.
  • Responsibility - for the procedure and each other.
  • Tolerance - by being able to repeat the procedure.
  • Solidarity - through working as a team.

  • Collaboration - by working together to fit the wheel in the fastest time possible.
  • Communication - with each other to create the successful sequence for the tyre change.
  • Critical Thinking - through analysing and developing good team work under pressure.
  • Motor Skills - through handling the tools and tyres.
