Energy Breakthrough starts a new era … without the RACV

Energy Breakthrough starts a new era … without the RACV

After 26 years, the RACV has decided to withdraw from the Energy Breakthrough. The Energy Breakthrough will continue in 2018 and beyond.

The Central Goldfields Shire Council (CGSC) and the Country Education Partnership (CEP) are proud of the Energy Breakthrough and how it has evolved with the support of the RACV. The CGSC and the CEP remain committed to this outstanding education program and look forward to the next phase of its development.

The Energy Breakthrough commenced in 1991 and has grown to be the premier science, technology, engineering and maths active learning program in Australia. The RACV has worked with the CGSC and CEP to create this iconic event which provides opportunities for thousands of primary and secondary students each year to celebrate their learning.

The Energy Breakthrough, held each year in Maryborough, has had a significant impact on many young people, teachers, parents and community members for over two decades. The legacy of the RACV is an outstanding event that has changed people’s lives.

The Energy Breakthrough is “powered by imagination” and we imagine a future that continues to provide an education program that inspires young people.

The 2018 Energy Breakthrough will be held on 21 – 25 November.
