The Greenpower Education Trust model has been functioning in the U.K. since 1999, providing evidence on the variety of distinct models available. The proportion of learning and professional development obtained during curricular or extra-curricular activities varies between academic centres that participate in this framework. The students design, manufacture and compete in their own electric cars. Direct participation of teaching staff, family members, specialist technical mentors and industrial partners also varies between different teams. In the Iberia geographical region, the student motivation, and UK Engineering Council defined professional competence development, are key factors which are visible in the schools where the project has been implemented to date. Examples are already available of teams from primary and secondary education publishing their activities, visible on the Kid´s Kitcar - Greenpower Iberia web page, as evidence of their project results for their stakeholders. The transparency of this project promotes these elements of open- and reflective-learning which are key to the students developing their own initiative and ability to “teach themselves”. The present work show the Greenpower educational project implementation in the formal education at Gaztelueta high school (Spain), taking advantage of the education by competences and the advantages of the project based learning.
