Leading Edge Sustainability Artefact To Go On Display In Science Centre

13 Sep

Huge thanks to OP and current parent Ian Vincent, who works at Jaguar Land Rover, for helping the College to procure this super display of an electronic drive unit from a Jaguar I-Pace as a scientific artefact for the College’s new Science Centre.

Depicting the motor, gearbox, transmission, battery and inverter, that turns DC into AC, along with assisting with the regenerative braking system, it’s an absolutely fantastic piece that showcases leading edge sustainability technology and is just perfect to act as inspiration for Princethorpe’s young scientists and engineers.

A Jaguar I-Pace Electric Powertrain, sourced by current parent Stefan Fuchss, will also go on display in the entrance to the Science Centre as part of the College’s commitment to providing the very best learning environment, one that nurtures young minds and fosters a deep appreciation and passion for science.

We are most grateful to Ian, and also to Princethorpe parents, Oliver Boakes and Stefan Fuchss, and to Nikola Uminska, all from JLR, for their support in arranging for the College to have these wonderful display items.

Ian visited the College to assemble the unit ready to be displayed and is pictured here with Sixth Form prefects, Amy Hogg, Chris Lock and Joseph Newborough.
