F1 in Schools calls on secondary schools in Mayo to enter the challenge

F1 in Schools have put out a final call for secondary schools to enter a challenge that could see them take part in World Finals in Melbourne next year.

F1 in Schools is the only global multi-disciplinary challenge in which teams of students deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, design, analyse, manufacture, test, and then race miniature compressed air-powered cars made from the F1 model block.

Ballina native Aaron Hannon, co-founder of F1 in Schools Ireland, has called on schools to enter this year’s programme.

He said: “F1 in Schools is a fantastic opportunity for second-level students to learn how to be a leader, an engineer or a businessperson in a fast-paced, exciting and competitive way.

“At F1 in Schools Ireland, we’re delighted to work with new schools and new teachers to help bring these opportunities to even more students. As such, we encourage all schools to contact us or visit f1inschools.ie to learn more about entering the 2020/21 F1 in Schools season.”

The deadline to enter is this Friday, November 20, at 11 p.m. The F1 in Schools World Finals will take place in Melbourne in March 2021.
