May 30, 2019


GUELPH, Ontario – A year of hard work has paid off for Guelph CVI’s Electric Vehicle Team.

On Saturday May 25, GCVI SHSM students competed at the Waterloo Electric Vehicle Challenge.

The annual event, hosted by Waterloo Engineering, encourages students to design and test their own electric car in an endurance competition.

The students worked hard all year to design, fabricate, program, machine, assemble, wire and test all three of the school’s vehicles that ran in this year’s competition. This year also featured GCVI’s new front wheel design, a first in its class.

GCVI Manufacturing teacher Matt Lyle said that the work the students put in this year really paid off. The team was awarded both the Dennis Weishar Engineering Design Award for excellence in Engineering design and the Toyota Fabrication & Manufacturing Award for excellence in vehicle construction.

This is the third year in a row that the school has won the Manufacturing category and the second consecutive year for Engineering.

Congratulations to the EV Team!
