F1 in Schools – Technology Challenge won by Irish school


F1 in Schools, organised by the Irish Computer Society in partnership with Discover Science Engineering, is a unique technology challenge that enables second-level students to get their hands on the latest technology from the worlds of engineering and manufacturing.

This unique student challenge is the largest global educational initiative. The students use CAD/CAM software to design, build and test a model compressed air-powered balsa wood F1 car of the future and it takes place in over 30 countries around the world, with an estimated 14 million school children aware of this engineering challenge.

Saint David’s Secondary School in Greystones, Ireland recently won the world championship for F1 in Schools, having previously won the Irish national competition.
