Nothing to do with HPV's but it is a wonderful idea to help developing countries with household power using bicycle technology.

Why All School Children Should Construct and Race A Human Powered Vehicle

Great article but the student builder seems to miss out on recognition. Dont forget the makers of society.

School built vehicles need to have a paper Plan that is updated as new rules and innovations are created in Vehicle design. This task can now be shared by a few teachers no matter where you might live.
We need a common CAD system. It has to be cheap or Free. Is there one?
YES

Please pass on to the right people.
Imagine a new Class of HPV at the Energy Breakthrough: Student Built Vehicles (SBV).Hit the Start Line with Massive Points recorded in a Database for your schools historical building programme. Past students names are recorded (and possible current email) in the Database for their contributions in building of: Sprockets, Kingpins, Frames, Steering, Brakes, Lighting, Fairing, Wheels. STEM in action and a connection for past students to glory in their past school days.
We all build ‘today’ on past achievements. Using online /blended learning even remote schools and colleges and the not so well off schools could feel a part of the RACV Energy Breakthrough thereby increasing potential participants. Giving the school Design and Technology Departments a powerful position in the STEM acronym. After this year’s race let’s meet online.

HPV Building in Main stream Classes.
1-Collect massive points for building Vehicles and Parts
2- Recorded in a National Database.
3- Create healthy competition and Team identity by turning the school workshop into two or even three distinctive TEAM AREAS.
4- SAVE thousands of $$$$$ AND BUILD SKILLS
5- Isolated less financial schools across Australia could enter
