Our mission

Little Scientists is a non profit organisation based in Canton Zurich which acts as the in-country coordinator for Switzerland for all aspects of this worldwide, non-profit STEM project. Little Scientists aims to provide the exciting F1® in Schools STEM challenge and education experience to students throughout Switzerland. Working with partners and supporters, we want to give the next generation of scientists and engineers a platform to experience the fascinating world of STEM through Formula 1 and we want to make this project available to all the students regardless of their socioeconomic background, race, or gender.

We see the F1® in Schools challenge as a fun learning environment where students can gain skills, make connections, and develop an informed view about careers in engineering, Formula 1, science, marketing, project management, and technology.

What is F1® in Schools?

F1® in Schools is an international STEM competition for children (aged 9–19), in which groups of 3–6 students have to design and manufacture miniature F1 model cars using real-world technology design tools.

This program aims to develop skills in problem solving, project management, communication, presentation, teamwork, innovation, self-promotion, collaboration, marketing and entrepreneurialism.


F1® in Schools is now recognized as the largest and most exciting STEM educational project in the world. Launched in 8 schools in the UK in 1999, it is now rolled out in over 26,000 schools in 51 countries.
