SUMMARY

The Greenpower Challenge aim was, and still is, to get young people enthusiastic about science and engineering by challenging them to design, build and race an electric car. Offered without reserve.

DESCRIPTION

  • Since 1980, DEMAND have designed and created bespoke assistive technology for disabled people across the age spectrum who are in need of tailored solutions that are not available through conventional means. Despite the disability products and equipment landscape improving a great deal over the 43 years of DEMAND’s existence, it is still the case that many 'off-the-shelf' solutions are inadequate in meeting the unique needs of disabled people, especially when they live with multiple impairments and/or complicated health conditions.
  • DEMAND's team of skilled designer-makers continue to innovate every day to fill this gap with equipment and products co-designed with the users, and where there is a small but clearly identified wider need, to make those designs available to all who would benefit
  • The 'Bushey Bullet' car was built to all Greenpower standards prevailing at the time and was modified by DEMAND to enable users with limited mobility to race using hand controls. The steering gear was also modified to facilitate easier access and egress
  • The car's final race was at the Goodwood finals in 2007 where staff and students of the school, with technical and moral support from DEMAND staff, finished with a creditable mid-table position
  • In the past five years alone, over 3,400 people have experienced the positive impact that having the right equipment has on everyday life, as well as on work, sporting, leisure, and educational opportunities.
