F1 in Schools
F1 in Schools is a global nonprofit company with partners committed to providing an exciting yet challenging educational experience through the magnetic appeal of Formula One. F1 in Schools is the world's largest and most successful school-based STEM program. Spanning age ranges from 11 to 18, its main objective is to inspire 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.
Students deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, design, analyze, manufacture, test, and then race miniature compressed air powered balsa wood F1 cars. Teams must raise sponsorship and manage budgets to fund research, travel and accommodations.

A Life Changing Experience with Amazing Opportunities.
Every parent wants their children to gain the most from their time in education and learn the skills that will form the foundation of their future in any career path they choose to follow. F1 in Schools provides just that! F1 in Schools gives students a unique opportunity to develop key skills such as; communication, presenting and team work while having fun by taking part in the world’s biggest and most exciting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) challenge. This exciting education initiative provides teachers with the opportunity to run a real-life competition with your children where they follow the same processes real Formula One teams follow from their initial business plan through to their car design. They will be using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, data analysis using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and drag calculation software, Computerised Numerical Control (CNC) machinery to manufacture their car, and wind and smoke tunnels for testing. Finally they will race their car on a 20 meter F1 in Schools race track to see who has designed and manufactured the fastest car.
F1 in Schools is Active in Over 40 Countries World Wide.
Teams must raise sponsorship and manage budgets to fund research, travel and accommodations. National Champios from all over the world compte annually.
