Students have been introduced to their Greenpower Kit Car. Over the next year they will have to design, build, test and race their car against other schools in Cornwall in the regional heats. The car is powered by an electric motor and the students are responsible for the entire project.

The Game Development co-curricular is giving Nexus students the chance to learn how to code a game for a specific audience. They can choose which language to use and to create their own game rules.
