Greenpower Racing Team

The Farley Greenpower Club is a program for students in fifth grade that provides an opportunity for students to learn about building and racing electric cars. Fifth Grade students build the chassis, complete all the electrical wiring, and design and build the body for the race car.

How to Join / Membership Requirements: 
Students in fifth grade who are interested in participating in Greenpower will be given an opportunity. Students must maintain classwork, be responsible, and have good behavior. Safety is our biggest concern and students who disregard safety regulations will not be allowed to participate in the portion of the program that deals with building and racing the car. Our Greenpower Curriculum teacher, Penny Hill will also be working with students in 5th grade each week with our Science Teacher, Mrs. Potter.

If you are interested in being a part of Team Farley Racing please complete application and liability form. Contact Ms. Mattie Hill with any questions.
