I recently received an email invitation to be a web partner for an upcoming event sponsored by Bosch Philippines. The event, entitled “Driving Innovation — Bosch Power Tools Asia Cordless Race 2011” is an inter-school go-kart construction and race competition open to all students in th tertiary level happening on May 15, 2011.
This event was organized to further promote green technology, showcase the talent and skills of our youth and at the same time, bring pride and honor to our country in an international competition.
Event organizers have selected 8 schools to participate in this event.
- University of Mindanao
- Colegio de San Juan de Letran
- Don Bosco Technical College
- Technological Institute of the Philippines
- University of the Philippines
- Mapua Institute of Technology
- Rizal Technological University
- University of San Carolos
These schools listed above have been selected with the following considerations: School must have a competent technical and/or engineering curriculum and a department that can support their team in constructing the go-karts that will be used for the race.
All participating schools/teams will be provided funding for the materials and construction of the go-karts. All schools are also required to be represented by a cheer dance group that will compete in one of the activities during the day of the event – an inter-school cheer dance competition.
The winning school team will represent the Philippines and compete against other teams from China, Korea, Malaysia and Thailand in Beijing, China on September 2011.
The “Driving Innovation — Bosch Power Tools Asia Cordless Race 2011” will be held on May 15, 2011 at the Boomland Kart Circuit in Pasay City from 9 AM til 10 PM. Aside from the race and the cheer dance competition, there will also be a concert featuring Amber, General Luna and Parokya ni Edgar. The event will be hosted by Drew Arellano and Karen Ostrea.
