Shaftesbury Students Discuss Merits Of Electric Vehicles During Volvo Visit

Shaftesbury School students have been discussing the merits of electric and hybrid vehicles and debating the limitations of the existing technology.

Yesterday, staff from Snow’s Volvo in Winchester brought a selection of vehicles into school for the students to explore. Alfred attended the session arranged for 28 STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics – pupils.

Whilst all the students we spoke with support electric vehicles, they were concerned that they’re not entirely suitable for their families at the moment. You’ll hear why in our report.
