The idea is to create an electric car that could shrink and enlarge at the press of a button, while being charged by the energy people create from exercise. The team have identified three benefits that will result from this idea. 1. It will get people to exercise. 2. It will reduce carbon emissions. 3. It will reduce the number of parking lots needed in cities across the country.

To trial this idea, the team wants to run an exercise competition within their school. Over a month each class will have to exercise as much as they can. The class that exercises the most over those 4 weeks will get a reward of their choice. This will incentivise exercise and encourage them to reduce their use of usual modes of transport including cars.
