The objective of this competition, in which Secondary and Vocational Training students participate, is to encourage the vocations of young people towards engineering studies through a project in which, during the course, they manufacture their own prototypes that are put to the test. in this increasingly popular race. According to the director of the Higher Technical School of Engineering of the University of Huelva, Salvador Pérez, “the project brings students closer to the problem of urban mobility in the use of sustainable vehicles from an environmental point of view, where renewable energy and their efficiency are the basis of the designs proposed by the participating teams”.
“At the Atlantic Copper Foundation we know how important it is to stimulate young people with actions that provide them with a practical approach to science and technology and this project promoted by the University of Huelva is a magnificent example”, stated Antonio de la Vega , CEO of the Foundation. “In addition, the challenge of developing prototypes of vehicles powered by solar energy is a plus that directly connects with our commitment to sustainability and care for the planet,” he stressed.
The Atlantic Copper Foundation will sponsor the 8th edition of the race to be held next May 18an initiative in which hundreds of young people enrolled in schools and educational centers participate each year.
