F1 in Schools Scottish Regional Finals
Last week, two S2 teams competed at the F1 in Schools Scottish Regional Finals.
F1 in Schools the only global multi-disciplinary challenge in which teams of students aged 9 to 19 deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, design, analyse, manufacture, test, and then race miniature compressed air powered cars made from F1 model block. It is a unique global platform for the promotion of Formula 1 and partners to a youth market.
Teams must raise sponsorship and manage budgets to fund research, travel and accommodation. The challenge inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing, leadership/teamwork, media skills and financial strategy, and apply them in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way.
Good luck to both our teams and stay tuned for updates!
