NWHS students compete in the F1 in School Competition Regional Finals

Posted on: 26th February 2018

The F1 in Schools challenge is an exciting yet challenging educational experience delivered through the magnetic appeal of Formula One.

We are very proud of the two groups of students, one Year 7 and one Year 8, who competed in this exciting competition recently. Both teams were exemplary on the day, representing themselves and the school.

Additionally the Year 8 team were awarded the Future Stars Award Trophy - making them keen to enter again next year at Development Level. To compete, students attended STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) Club at the school where they worked as teams to deploy CAD/CAM software to design, analyse, manufacture, test, and then race, miniature compressed air powered F1 cars.

The teams also raised sponsorship to fund their entry and would like to thank Norwich T-Shirt Printers for their kind donation of printed T-Shirts and Wrights Coaches for sponsoring their transport to and from the competition.

The challenge inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing, leadership/teamwork, media skills and financial strategy, and apply them in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way. Well done all - we’re very proud of you.

Mrs Parker, Head of Design & Technology.
