Formula 1 in Schools

Written by: Pete Henshaw | Published:

The Formula 1 in Schools STEM Challenge kicks off its new season in the UK with registrations now open.

The challenge is a mix of hands-on learning, team-work and skills-building and is open to anyone aged five to 19. There are four classes of entry, with two aimed at primary-aged children – the Bloodhound SSC Primary Challenge (9 to 11-year-olds) and the Jaguar Primary School Challenge (5 to 11-year-olds).

The programme is designed to fit into the curriculum or it can be offered as an extra-curricular activity with three tiered classes to appeal to different age groups and abilities.

The Jaguar Primary School Challenge involves designing and manufacturing the fastest car possible, emulating the design and engineering processes employed by real engineering companies, such as Jaguar Cars.
