2017 DRAFT EVENT SCHEDULE

The RACV Energy Breakthrough is an exciting program designed to provide opportunities for students, teachers, parents and local industry to work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine or innovation in technology that will represent an ‘energy breakthrough’.
Whilst so much of the work happens in classrooms and workshops throughout the year, all of this preparation comes together in Maryborough, Victoria over four busy days!
