Schools can become involved in the F1® in Schools project in different ways:

Internal Competition
Entering regional and national competitions is not a pre-requisite for running the F1 in Schools program in your school. Internal school competitions may be as far as you would like to progress initially while building towards external competitions.
Compete in Regional and National Competitions
Your school team(s) can race their cars against teams from other schools in their region and even nationally. Each year regional and national champions will be crowned in each class.
Act as a development Hub
F1 in Schools hubs are an ideal vehicle to facilitate effective and successful partnerships between schools and local communities with the aim of supporting educational growth in their local area

Why have a team

  • Encourage students to consider Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers and learning during formative years
  • Provide schools an alternative option for learning and skills development as part of the curriculum
  • Encourage collaboration and knowledge transfer between industry and schools
  • Improve and increase employability of students
  • Promote entrepreneurism in students
  • Increase involvement for girls in STEM
  • Develop new transferrable skills key to industry
  • Increase awareness of the benefits of careers in STEM
  • Ensure that STEM becomes a part of the everyday language of students

Why become a hub?

The Hub is the Design & Manufacturing centre for your region. It will host test events and will be equipped with state-of-the-art equipment, including 3D printers, CNC machines, competition grade race track, an air trace visualisation tunnel plus much more.

An F1® in Schools Hub is effectively a centre of excellence for local Schools taking part in F1® in Schools. It provides schools with access to F1® in Schools 'Make, Test and Race' equipment, which may otherwise not have been available to them.

Teams will then have the opportunity to visit their local F1® in Schools Hub to see their cars being manufactured using CNC machines (plus 3D Printers for the wheels and aerofoils), with the finished cars being tested using the Air Trace Visualisation System ultimately, the F1 Race Track – testing speed and performance.
