STEAM ahead with young ideas…!!!

The Challenge

PeachyKeen are proud to be working in collaboration with The The Royal Highland Education Trust to present this fantastic STEAM Design Competition!

Farmers produce the food we eat and often this requires the use of technology. We are looking for you to find out a bit more about food production and use this knowledge to design a pedal powered machine linked to food production. PeachyKeen is the human energy company, who are based in Kirkcaldy, Fife. The PeachyKeen team designed and made the PeachyKeen Pod, an electricity generating spin bike. In collaboration with PeachyKeen, RHET would like to present the fantastic opportunity to design a new device which has to be powered by a PeachyKeen Pod – no mains electricity allowed, just pedal power!

You might want to design a bike that grinds wheat into flour, helps to milk a cow, shear a sheep or that plants a crop.

We will be judging the entries based on three criteria:

What to submit
