Motor Vehicle students “Scrapheap Challenge”

oakmere-college-car-scapheap-challenge-single-newsOakmere’s motor vehicle students were given the challenge of producing a vehicle made entirely of scrap materials around the College.

Having looked around at what was available they came up with the idea of making a 1920’s style car using pedal power. They researched and designed the car and set about building the vehicle that can be pedalled by three of the four occupants.
Motor vehicle tutor Andy Davies explained “the students did a great job of re-cycling materials and turning them into a car that not only looks good but works really well. It has five gears, a reverse, lights and the only cost was for the purchase of an authentic sounding horn!
“The students learned how to fabricate and weld, the principles of how gears work and used their imagination to turn scrap into a great looking vehicle, they did a fantastic job”
