About Energy Breakthrough

The Energy Breakthrough is a joint initiative of the Country Education Project (CEP), Central Goldfields Shire Council (CGSC).

We are a non-profit community organisation that brings together education, local government and industry into collaborative partnerships, together fostering confident, competent and socially aware young people, ready to make difference in today’s world.

We engage school communities across Australia and bring tourism, economic, and social benefits to regional Victoria, through our active learning program and event.

The Energy Breakthrough provides opportunities for students, teachers, parents and local industry to work together to design and construct a vehicle, a machine or innovation in technology that will represent an ‘energy breakthrough’.

The program encourages participants to examine and use the latest technology while considering its impact on the environment and the way people live locally and globally.

School groups work throughout the year to design, build and test vehicles or machines within detailed specifications. It requires a team effort and an across-the-curriculum approach. These groups then bring their vehicles and machines to Maryborough in the Central Goldfields Shire, Victoria for a huge celebration in which they can demonstrate and trial them in action.
