Team manager Elly Schumann said she became interested in the program after another school went to Kyabram to show the students their cars. Elly said the cars, which travel at a speed of around 85km/h, took from 1.08 to 1.3 sec to complete the race, with the world record at just under one second.
‘‘There’s so much I’ve learned and I’m not even an engineer,’’ the 16-year old said. ‘‘I’ve definitely realised the other pathways I could take in my career.’’
The team are now fundraising to meet their goal of $30000 to get them to the finals.
Mr Roberts said a goods and services auction in support of the team would take place at the school at 7pm on Saturday, July 21.
Tickets to the auction are $20 for adults or $10 for students and can be purchased from the school reception or by phoning 0488522065.
