Developed to introduce students to STEM subjects in the most engaging way possible – through the creation of a miniature F1 car – F1 in Schools is an educational project like no other. Designed for teachers, informed by engineers, and endorsed by F1, this programme sets students on the fast track to STEM success; and provides a lot of fun on the way there.
Designed for ages 9-19, the challenge requires students to form teams of 3-6. They then work together to allocate roles and responsibilities: developing designs, planning prototypes, manufacturing models, brainstorming branding, and securing sponsors. A challenge rooted in STEM, but encompassing so much more, F1 in Schools ignites the spark of innovation at a critical age and opens eyes to careers students may have never thought possible.
Passionate about closing the STEM gender gap, over 40% of F1 in Schools participants are female, and we are partnered with several organisations who share our commitment to supporting, encouraging, and promoting women into typically male-dominated industries, including the FIA’s Women in Motorsport initiative, and the Girls on Track UK programme led by Motorsport UK.
