Six of our Year 9 STEM Academy students competed in the F1 in Schools National contest this week.
Charli Wright, Georgie Jones, Amy Howard, Luke Wagstaff, James Lowther and Lochlan Lawler were the only team representing WA in the Development Class division.
They were supposed to fly to Melbourne, but COVID-19 restrictions saw the competition change its format to allow all teams to compete virtually.
F1 in Schools is the largest STEM competition in the world. Students have to design, create and market a small car for racing and are judged on their knowledge of physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacturing, branding, graphics, sponsorship, media skills and finance in their video-conference presentation.
They will find out later this week if they make it to the World Finals. We wish them luck!
