@The_IMI - Excitement hots up for Ardingly Ifield Solar Car Tour - John O’Groats to Haywards Heath
Ardingly Solar is a collaborative project between two science renowned schools - Ardingly College and Ifield Community College – to bring new, fresh thinking to the age-old problem of vehicle pollution. Tackling pollution ‘one car at a time’, the students have developed a series of innovative solutions over the last decade. The Institute of the Motor Industry has supported Ardingly Ifield Solar throughout its developments, playing a pivotal role in the construction of each of the solar cars, as well as developing an electric vehicle extracurricular course for pupils that will be trialled at Ardingly College and Ifield Community College this September.
BEN benefits from @The_IMI’s extra mile
Throughout most of October, IMI employees and the wider automotive community rode their bikes, ran and walked to raise vital funds for the industry charity BEN. Over £2,000 was raised and the amount is contributing towards the IMI’s efforts of fulfilling its £100,000 Centenary target for the charity.
