Greenpower is dedicated to promoting engineering and technology to students ages 9 to 25. This is achieved through unique hands-on projects to design, build and race electric cars. This engineering challenge takes place in the U.K., while an international pilot is being run in the U.S. with plans to expand this project globally. As the title sponsor, Siemens is proud to support Greenpower in inspiring more students to become engineers.
Greenpower Challenge Formula 24 Kit Car
Students can download the Greenpower Challenge Formula 24 Kit Car. The Solid Edge part and assembly files contained in this zip file contain all the parts that make up the Formula 24/24+ kit car including the rolling chassis, batteries and motor.
Disclaimer: The files have been created in Solid Edge ST8 to help teams using the Formula 24 Kit Car and every attempt has been made to ensure the geometric accuracy of each component. However, it is the responsibility of users to check and validate the accuracy of each component for use in the development and production of their Greenpower vehicle.
This online assembly guide provides an easy to follow step-by-step guide to help students assemble the Greenpower Formula 24 kit car. This online guide includes assembly instructions, pictures, animations, parts list, and a list of required tools. The assembly guide can be used in conjunction with the Solid Edge model of the kit car (see above) and the Solid Edge mobile viewer, providing students with an interactive 3D model of the kit car.
Greenpower Formula 24 kit car
This self-paced, step-by-step Solid Edge tutorial guides students through the process of designing a set of body panels for the Greenpower Formula 24 kit car. Solid Edge drawings of the flattened panels provide templates for fabricating the body panels from corrugated plastic sheet. This is a great tutorial to get started with both Solid Edge and the Greenpower Challenge.
STEM Project Curriculum
Students are introduced to the Greenpower Challenge with activities including the development of a feasibility study for their school’s participation in the project. The Greenpower Challenge, an international STEM initiative of The Greenpower Education Trust, is supported by Siemens and promotes sustainable engineering to young people.
Greenpower Steering Wheel
This STEM project includes comprehensive presentations, classroom material and step-by-step tutorials for a steering wheel design project. This project is suitable for all schools including those taking part in the Greenpower Challenge.
Greenpower Goblin Resources
The Greenpower Formula Goblin resources inspire 9- to 11-year-olds with dynamic 3D images, animation and CAD files viewable in free viewers.
Greenpower Goblin Mk2
The Greenpower Goblin Mk2 is for Elementary schools (students aged 9 to 11 years old). The Solid Edge viewer allows students to explore, visualise and manipulate a fully detailed 3D model of the Goblin Mk2 kit-car.
Introduction to Finite Element Analysis
The STEM project introduces students to forces in materials, physical testing and Finite Element Analysis (FEA). The project includes comprehensive Teacher notes, classroom material, step-by-step tutorials and homework tasks. This project is suitable for all schools, including those taking part in the Greenpower Challenge.
Introduction to Mechanical Systems
The STEM project introduces students to the concepts of mechanical systems as a means of transmitting energy. The project includes comprehensive Teacher notes, classroom material, step-by-step tutorials and homework tasks. This project is suitable for all schools, including those taking part in the Greenpower Challenge.
Introduction to Surfacing
The STEM project introduces students to surface geometry and the concepts of surface modelling, providing an awareness of the different surfacing techniques and where there are advantages over solid modelling. The project includes comprehensive Teacher notes, classroom material, step-by-step tutorials and homework tasks. This project is suitable for all schools, including those taking part in the Greenpower Challenge.
