EVolocity Waikato revved into gear with the second Build Day for 2017 at Cambridge High School recently.
About 50 secondary school students and teachers attended the day, focused on the programming of controllers for the electric vehicles.
EVolocity Waikato co-ordinator Levinia Paku, of the Waikato Engineering Careers Association, was impressed with student efforts.
"This year students are using Arduino boards for the first time. These have innovative sensors which determine things like how far a vehicle is in front of you, the speed of the vehicle and battery status. This is very exciting," Levinia said.
Special thanks to Build Day hosts Cambridge High School and Brent Phillips (Wintec) and Matt Peebles (University of Waikato) for taking the Arduino board session.
