The Formula Goblin project aims to inspire children in 5th and 6th grades to take an interest in engineering in a fun and innovative way. The project is for children to build their very own functioning and drivable electric car. The kit comes flat packed with step by step instruction guiding the team through the build in an easy to understand manner. The build introduces children to basic mechanics, tools, and engineering concepts.

The build can be integrated in to the curriculum to highlight key areas such as friction, electricity, materials, math, and design technology – while being a fun and hands-on activity for children. The project also encourages parental participation during clubs and event days. Many schools are able to gain support from local businesses both practically and financially to help the project in their school or group.
