F1 in Schools STEM Challenge

Following several evenings of planning and designing, students are well on the way to producing their compressed-air powered model Formula 1 racing car in preparation for the regional Final which is being held in Birmingham on 15th January 2020.

The team comprises five students, James, Matthew, Jasmina, Laurence and Jedizej.

Jasmina has written the following article which totally sums up the team’s excitement and commitment for the challenges the regional Final is likely to bring:

“The F1 in Schools STEM Challenge is a mind-opening opportunity for Shipston High School students to design and make a compressed air-powered model Formula 1 racing car using 2D and 3D CAD/CAM software and techniques, together with a 5-page design portfolio detailing their design journey.

This might sound daunting, yet Shipston’s skilled team, creatively named Apex Racing, have the knowledge and guidance to overcome any obstacle!  The portfolio and race car will be ready to be tested in competition at the Regional final.”
