For the second year running A&P Falmouth sponsored the Cornwall College Greenpower Regional heats, held at St Mawgan Airfield, Newquay.
The annual event, which involved over 1500 pupils from 60 primary schools, was held on 20th June with 70 electric cars, designed and built by children, taking to the race track. The competition incorporates maths, engineering, physics, design, marketing, problem solving and communication into the school curriculum.
A&P provided assistance with stewarding and sponsored TITAN the Robot. TITAN the Robot is an entertainment concept unlike anything else on earth and has appeared at the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix and the UK premier of iRobot and Real Steel. Titan has also worked alongside superstars including Will.i.am, Rihanna, Will Smith and Jackie Chan and has travelled the world.
Rachel Penhaligon, Liaison Officer, Cornwall College Business, said: “Titan was amazing and really ‘wowed’ the children and adults alike! They were all buzzing. Also, the A&P helpers were so supportive of the event, as always. THANK YOU for all the support A&P has given to the Greenpower project”.
