Electric Racing Cars Workshop Ages 7-12

Rev up your engines and get ready for an electrifying adventure with our Build and Test Your Own Electric Car workshop! In this thrilling workshop, you'll get to assemble the chassis, axel, and wheels of your very own electric car, design a unique card body, and charge a super capacitor to power your ride.

Once your vehicle is ready, it's time to put it to the test in an epic endurance race across the room! Expect a few bumps and obstacles along the way as you make mistakes, test, and improve until your car performs exactly as you want it to.

This exciting activity is perfect for children aged 7-12, and children must be accompanied by a parent or carer. 

But the fun doesn't have to stop there - adults are welcome to join in on the action and compete against their children in this exhilarating race to the finish line!

Thanks to the generosity of the Tanner Phoenix Trust through the Cornwall Community Fund, we're able to bring this incredible workshop to you. So, what are you waiting for? Get ready to rev your engines, explore your creativity, and race your way to victory in our Build and Test Your Own Electric Car workshop!
