F1 in Schools™ - Wales
F1 in Schools™
The F1 in Schools STEM Challenge involve designing and manufacturing compressed air powered model racing cars using sophisticated free Autodesk CAD software.
Schools can involve as many pupils as they wish and can enter three teams of up to six students in the Regional Finals. The cars are raced along a 20 metre track at speeds of around 60mph!
Teams are involved in all stages of the process of designing and making the model car, including a series of wind tunnel tests. Teams design their car before sending their designs to us to be manufactured.
