It’s particularly appropriate that we’re running the competition now as 2018 is the Year of Engineering

Lieutenant Commander Christopher Pinder

The project involves pupils from different age groups building two types of model car – the first using shoe boxes and the second, more complex model, built using balsa wood, motors, circuitry and batteries.

Each school will then hold their own internal competition, putting the models to the test climbing up and rolling downhill to find the school winner.

The ten schools will enter their winning car at a Celebration Day at Dunoon Grammar School in May.

“It’s particularly appropriate that we’re running the competition now as 2018 is the Year of Engineering,” continued Lieutenant Commander Pinder.

“The UK still leads the world in sectors like aerospace and the automotive and the Royal Navy’s engineers are still at the heart of operations around the globe.  We hope that young people continue to be interested in engineering and take the opportunity to shape the future of the world.”
