Teams are still able to register for the 2021 Energy Breakthrough, with entries available in several categories, but places are filling fast.
With categories opening last week, so far 285 teams have signed up to participate in the festival, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
Categories that are still open include:
- Energy Efficient Vehicles
- Human Powered Vehicles (Secondary)
- Innovations in Technology
- Junkyard Challenge
HPV Primary, or HPV A, is full with 90 entries.
Energy Breakthrough chairperson and Flynn Ward Councillor, Liesbeth Long encouraged schools to register and take part in this year’s festival.
“Energy Breakthrough is unique. It is the largest Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) festival of its kind in Australia and everyone – students, teachers, parents, spectators and volunteers – keep returning year after year,” she said.
“This year looks to be no different, and with the comprehensive range of measures being put in place by the festival organising committees to address Covid related risks, the Shire is fully geared up to welcome new and returning participants.
“Energy Breakthrough isn’t just a fantastic opportunity for students to test themselves physically and mentally, it is also the chance for them to learn more about our environment, the importance of sustainability and alternative fuels.”
This year’s event will be held from 17 November to 21 November.
