Greenpower Education - East Fortune, East LothianFriday, 29 March, 09:00 » 16:00
Greenpower Education Trust is a UK based charity with an outstanding track record in kick starting careers in engineering. They help unlock potential and spark enthusiasm for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) through the excitement of motorsport.
Teams of students aged nine to 25 take the Greenpower challenge – to design and build an electric car to race at Greenpower events. They are supplied with an appropriate kit which can be built in school, college or elsewhere and raced at motorsport venues around the country. Alternatively, older participants can design and build their own car to challenge regulations.
Further details of the Greenpower events are available at www.greenpower.co.uk
Events already confirmed for 2019 include:
- 29 March - East Fortune, East Lothian
- 14 June - Grampian Transport Museum, Alford
- 22 September - East Fortune, East Lothian
Approximately ten marshals are required for each event, primarily to assist in the rescuing of broken-down cars from the track and getting them onto the rescue trailer to be taken back to the pits. There has only been one know accident in the last four years when a car ran into the back of another.
If you can assist, or simply want more information, please contact Alan Slade, the Greenpower Ambassador for Scotland, either by email (Alan.Slade@greenpower.co.uk) or mobile (07852 670215).
Emergency Services Day 2019Wednesday, 3 April, 11:00 » 16:00
We had great fun at the Emergency Services Day at The Helix, Falkirk last year and are delighted to have been invited back.
This is a great opportunity to get close to the Rescue Units while the crew demonstrate the wide range of equipment that we carry and use.
Enjoy exciting displays and demonstrations, including first aid, fire and rescue with police vehicles, mounted police, ambulances, and more! Learn all about our vital emergency services teams and how they work.
This family friendly event is completely free of charge and has something to interest everyone!
There will be a sensory hour between 3.00pm and 4.00pm (where no sirens, flashing lights or other loud noises will be used at this time) so that everyone can come down to the park and enjoy.
