RS Grass Roots Education are proud sponsors of both competitions this year and have opened a Build Fund to support teams with hands-on technical learning as they bring their designs to life.

The Build Fund allows the teams to evaluate their team objectives, areas of improvement in regards to technical skills, and how the fund will impact their competition entry. The entries provided very interesting ambitions and direction of developing more sustainable solutions with most teams pushing to electrify their cars.

The lucky winners of the Build Fund will be provided with:
