Six schools will win a Connected Package including:
• A lecture on sustainable mobility

New interactive teaching tools will be made available to all, free of charge!
The Monique-Fitz-Back Foundation is developing fun, original teaching materials about transportation electrification and sustainable mobility that will be in line with the Ministry of Education’s syllabus. A booklet depicting the electrification industry and its employment prospects will also be available to curious secondary school students wishing to know more about this booming sector. Materials will be available online in late October. 

A chance for competing schools to win participation prizes!
Each registered school will have a chance to win an electric bicycle equipped with a charging station for electronic devices. The bicycle will have a stand and it can be parked in the school gymnasium or elsewhere. Your students will line up to pedal!
