Mini Formula E- school visits for the launch of Recover E
06 Apr 2023
Lazerian, in collaboration with Envision Racing representatives, recently embarked on an inspiring mission to encourage creativity and sustainability among young students. The team visited several schools in the Manchester area to introduce the Recover E mini car competition to pupils between the ages of 11 and 16.
The Recover E mini car competition aims to inspire kids to be creative and utilize electronic waste to construct an electric race car. The competition urges students to take things apart, understand how they function, and use their imaginations to build something entirely new. The worldwide campaign with Envision Racing is all about promoting creativity and sustainability and ultimately doing this whilst creating an electric car and having fun.
During the visit, Lazerian and Envision Racing representatives visited two schools in the Manchester area – Cheadle High School and Whalley Range High School. At both schools, the team had the opportunity to speak to pupils about the importance of sustainability and the role that creativity can play in solving environmental problems. They shared insights and encouraged the students to think outside the box and embrace innovative ideas. Many students had questions about electric vehicles and electric cars in general and how they can help sustainability in the future which ensured a great conversation about our planet’s future was had.
To further inspire the students, the team brought along a real-life size formula E racing car, allowing the students to see and experience first-hand what an electric race car looks and feels like. The students were thrilled to see the electric car up close and learn more about its design and engineering.
In addition to the school visits, the team also visited Moss Side Millennium Powerhouse to meet with kids representing schools in the area as Global sustainability ambassadors. The team engaged with the young ambassadors, discussing ideas on how to make a positive impact on the environment and create a sustainable future
Overall, the visit by Lazerian and Envision Racing representatives was a massive success, inspiring young students to be creative and innovative while promoting sustainability. The Recover E mini race-car competition is an excellent way to engage students in sustainable practices, encouraging them to think critically and problem-solve in a fun and exciting way. As Lazerian has worked on previous sustainability projects with Envision the importance of this is always at the forefront of both companies ethos.
