Programs

HPV - Human Powered Vehicles

For a number of years now St Martins has been involved in Human Powered Vehicle competitions across the state.

The program promotes a team approach to preparation and competing, with a great opportunity for mechanical and engineering minds to work together to build and maintain the carts and strive for the competitive edge. The team of students commit to training and performing at their best in competition.
