Designers of record-breaking electric motorcycles and winners of multiple awards for low-carbon innovations


Electric motorcycle testing

Education is at the core of everything we do at Weald Technology and we get actively involved at many levels. See below for examples:

…a parent of a girl in Year 6 approached me on Friday to say how much her daughter had been inspired by your talk.

Janine Lambourne, Vice Principal, Hartley Primary Academy.

School Speakers: Phil Edwards is registered with School Speakers to deliver talks on engineering, technology, and his record-breaking electric motorcycle challenge. You can read more and make an enquiry HERE.

STEM Sussex: as STEM Ambassadors we volunteer our time in schools and at events, committing more than 10% of our time to voluntary support in school and at careers fairs.

SEPnet: from 2011 to 2016 we have taken Physics undergraduates on 8-week summer work placement.

Nuffield Foundation: we mentored two 6th form students towards their Gold CREST awards with 4-week placements in the summer of 2013 and 2014.

Northbrook College: we have given projects to Motorsport Engineering undergraduates in the past, supporting the Fast Charge world-record challenge.

EDT: We have worked with the Engineering Development Trust, supporting teams of students working on ‘Future Transport’ projects for both EES and EES Applied awards.

EES: in 2016 we mentored a team of four students at Space Studio West London on a 6-month transport project for the Engineering Education Scheme. We were delighted when they were each awarded an Industrial Cadets Level 3 Gold for their work, as well as the “Students Choice” award.

EES: in 2017 we were invited back to Space Studio West London to mentor two teams working on sustainable transport projects.

National Motorsport Week: we use National Motorsport Week as an opportunity to educate and inspire students with talks and presentations about the Fast Charge world-record challenge.

This is clearly a long-standing commitment when you realise that our founder, Phil Edwards, received a commendation from the Engineering Council in 1994 for “… his major contribution to the development of Young Engineers”

You have really inspired the students and given them a wonderful perspective into a totally new career path. You made a very important contribution to the day and we are very grateful for your time, enthusiasm and expertise.
