Graham Browne - Engineer in Residence at Warrington FabLab

 

Graham is an ex-pupil of our school and since leaving, has been involved in the design of a lot of exciting car design projects. He became the Chief designer of TVR Sports Cars at 27 and has since established his own design consultancy business called Morphosa ltd, which now supplies design services to companies including Jaguar Land Rover and Bentley Motors.

 

One of the exciting projects Graham is currently working on is a human/electric-hybrid, aerodynamic safety tricycle. This vehicle is aimed at exploiting the current and future investment in cycling infrastructure throughout the world, such as the 913m Sterling program of building and improvements to the London Cycle Superhighway.

 

Graham will be using our FabLab facilities to turn his vision and computer aided designs into physical working prototypes and engaging with our pupils and staff to transfer knowledge and share ideas. It is hoped that the final design will enable a commuter to travel 60 miles each day on less than 20 pence worth of electricity whilst producing zero emissions and paying no insurance or road tax, all whilst fully enclosed in a weatherproof composite safety cell designed to protect the rider from potential impacts.
