Bridgestone took its ground-breaking low rolling resistance Ecopia compound on the road again – to the Science Alive expo at the Adelaide Showgrounds.
A permanent fixture on school calendars in South Australia, this year’s Science Alive saw Bridgestone join more than 70 science-related organisations to offer a range of hands-on experiences and activities.
For thousands of students, the event started on August 5 with the Science Alive Career Day, where Bridgestone’s very own engineer, Mathew Mills, helped inspire students to pursue a career in engineering, science or a field that will benefit the community.
Mathew was also on the stand answering the many questions he received throughout the rest of the weekend, when Science Alive was opened to the public. He was joined by special guests from the Adelaide University Solar Racing Team who will bought along their solar car, Lumen.
The Bridgestone stand gave visitors the opportunity to interact with the fuel-saving tyre compound Ecopia as well as test Bridgestone’s “three-wheelers with a difference”, tyre-trikes that have been ridden by a host of well-known Australian faces, including actor Shane Jacobson, former racing car driver Larry Perkins and V8 Supercar drivers Rick and Todd Kelly.
Science Alive was a great opportunity to showcase innovations that have an impact on people’s hip pockets and, importantly, on the health of our world.
It’s one of the ways we’re aiming to inspire the youth of today and grow their interest in science and technology – because when it comes to creating solutions for tomorrow, they’re our greatest asset.
Stay tuned to see which event Bridgestone’s innovative tyre technology will end up at next!
