Scalextric Cars, Wicked Competances, and Skills for Industry

Monday 5th March 2018, 2-4pm, Teaching Grid, Main Library

An interactive workshop directly applicable to STEM areas but also relevant to anyone seeking to develop skills for industry in their students.

The session will demonstrate how Scalextric slot-cars, powered by batteries, can inspire student engagement in experiential learning of battery electric vehicle engineering phenomena. Participants will design and undertake short experiments to evaluate battery and whole-vehicle performance under a range of scaled real-world use case scenarios. The accompanying presentation will highlight alignment of the activities to industry skills needs.
