F1 in Schools

At Wetherby High School we pride ourselves on Challenge and Resilience. Both of these credentials will be put to test this year when a group of highly talented design and technology students will be aiming for high levels of success in the world renowned ‘F1 in Schools’ challenge.
The F1 in Schools Technology Challenge is a multi-disciplinary challenge open to all secondary schools, sixth form colleges, colleges of further education and other organised youth groups.Teams of 3-6 students aged 11 to 19 deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, design, analyse, manufacture, test, and then race miniature compressed air powered high density foam F1 cars. Teams of 3 – 6 students are judged on car speed, as well as supporting evidence of their design, verbal presentation and marketing display stand in ‘‘the pits”.
