What Is F1 In Schools?
F1 in Schools is the largest and most successful international, school-based STEM competition. Annually, winners of the national final in each participating country go on to the world finals, which are held in a host country, and live streamed globally at the Grand Prix.
The competition requires students to form and properly finance an F1 team to design and manufacture a miniature CO2-powered F1 car. Similarly to real F1, teams must put together a pit booth, make a verbal presentation, compile engineering and enterprise portfolios and answer judges' questions on anything from the aero-dynamics of the car to the colour palette they chose for branding. They then finally race against other teams. Each of these steps offer fantastic exposure and association opportunities for sponsors.
