Ballyclare Secondary School is delighted to have the opportunity to work on a KIT Car Project and to participate in the IET Formula 24 challenge run by the Greenpower Education Trust. We have 10 very excited Year 11 pupils in the team who have named themselves ‘Forget Fossil’.
Forget Fossil held a very successful event for company representatives to attend on Friday 6th March 2015 at 3.30pm. The purpose of the event was to reach out to organisations and businesses to support us with this very exciting venture. Prior to the event Forget Fossil had drawn up a wish list for potential sponsorship of items. At the meeting our pupils did a fantastic job of outlining the project and requirements, in the hope that businesses would offer manpower and/or resources to assist in building a fantastic KIT car. We were overwhelmed with the assistance offered by local business and in fact, are delighted to say that we secured sponsorship for all of the items on our wish list at the meeting on Friday 6th March.
