This year’s Energy Breakthrough saw BSSC unveil its newest Human Powered Vehicle, ‘Don’t Turn into a Starfish’, and a reworked Hybrid called ‘The T-rex was angry because they had short arms’. The event threatened to be run in 40-degree temperatures, but thankfully a cool change arrived and conditions were quite pleasant.
As the race progressed, it was clear we had two great vehicles and well-drilled teams. At times, both teams were topping their respective categories.
By end of the race ‘Starfish’ had achieved third in its class, with ‘T-Rex’ finishing top of its class as well as winning the presentation award and the outright award for its class.
Congratulations to all the students who participated and the staff that helped make it a really successful 2019 Energy Breakthrough.
