Thousands of Queensland students will take part in an amazing race towards the future at the RACQ Technology Challenge in Maryborough, Queensland in September 14-15, 2013. Teams of teenagers will peddle for 24 hours in one of the states most challenging endurance races – the Queensland 24 Hour Human Powered Vehicle Championship.
The HPV race is the feature event of the Tech Challenge, where students design, build and race a variety of machines that harness alternative energy.
There are five other events to test the innovation of both primary and high school students with challenges involving Smilie pushcarts, solar boats and cars, tiny CO2 powered dragsters and Lego robots. Students marry technology with teamwork to create exciting machines. They use active learning processes to address real challenges in their generation, exploring energy options for the 21st century.
