Activity
A number of teams, working in separate areas, are each given the task of constructing a vehicle and developing a marketing concept for it. At the end, their ‘soapboxes’ are presented in a test drive and are put through an MOT to test them for safety. A versatile tool that puts the fun back into learning.

How It‘s Done
Each team is given the task of constructing a vehicle complete with brakes and steering system. Each soapbox vehicle should be capable of transporting one person and will be powered by up to two HP (Human Power). The vehicle will also need a logo and a slogan to go with it. One major sticking point in the task: the vehicles should be as similar in construction as possible, but differently equipped. During the development phase, the leaders of the construction teams meet in

a separate area to talk everything through in detail. In the ‘Change’ variant, the teams work for a specific length of time on their vehicle and are then re-deployed to continue working on an- other team’s vehicle. The learning project culminates in the MOT inspection of the vehicle followed by a soapbox vehicle parade.
