Burnside HS Moodle Home
Thanks to the students and parents in the Burnside Evolocity Teams and the Burnside PTA we were able to shine at the Evolocity National event held at the Wigram Airbase. With over 40 of the regional finalists vehicles competing from all over the country, Burnside drove out with some impressive records. We were very successful at Regionals, and then proved it was not just luck by ending up as the second best placed School overall in NZ.
Evolocity 2018 - Burnside High School Teams competing!
Secondary students design, build and compete in electric vehicles.
School teams build a vehicle (either a bike or with 3+ wheels) powered by a standard 350W electric motor, controller and two 12V gel cells. Innovation is encouraged as students strive to make their vehicle the fastest with the least drag, and able to cope with the demands of a tight street circuit. The Innovation categories encourage teams to build in object detection and mitigation features along with the measurement and display of key performance metrics.
