Bridge of Weir Primary School Electric Car Project


As one of the five sponsors, Gryffe Valley Rotary Club was delighted to see the unveiling and first public run of Bridge of Weir Primary School’s electric car on 9th June. The car was constructed from a kit, after school hours by members of the STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering and Maths) Club, composed of P6 and P7 pupils. Assembly started in early 2020 but, like so many other activities, was halted by COVID restrictions which caused the suspension of the Club’s activities until the autumn of 2021. With some technical assistance from a few of our Members, the pupils completed the task over the following seven months, earning a well deserved opportunity to drive the car. Congratulations to the STEM Club members on their determination and persistence!
