Hello, I am Mitchel Honeywill, a Year 12 Physics
student and this year I have been given the opportunity to lead the Geraldine
High School Evolocity team. The challenge is to build a light, electric vehicle
to race against other schools at the end of the year in the Canterbury Finals.
This year we are making a motorcycle, a change from the 4 and 3 wheeled
vehicles that we have made previous years. In the previous years we have
placed, especially 2014 where the group of students that represented the school
won the overall title and all the subcategories.
The purpose is for us to learn how to create a completely electric vehicle using state of the art 21st century technology. This includes developing our own devices to provide solutions, such as the voltage being streamed to a handheld device. This year we hope to follow in the footsteps of the 2014 team, taking out the title with our motorcycle and we are looking for people to sponsor or donate to us. If you would be interested in supporting our evolutional piece of technology, we would greatly appreciate it. You can contact us from the links below for more information.
