In Shoreham, a second provided a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) event for pupils at Shoreham Academy. In this fun event, the students were given master classes on aerodynamics and buoyancy, and were able to see some of the cars Ricardo has worked on over the years.

The third team travelled to Brighton to work at Stanmer Community Garden, helping maintenance of the greenhouses, planting out and weeding.
