F1 in Schools Ireland is the country’s largest school-age STEM competition, challenging students to design, build and race the fastest and most-efficient miniature car powered by compressed gas cylinders and built to Formula One specifications.
The Final of the competition is being live broadcast on TG4, with students from all over Ireland racing their cars at up to 100km per hour to win a place at the World Finals. Students will be judged on the speed of their car, as well as their engineering and entrepreneurial skills to fund their project. It is hoped this will inspire young students to get excited about scientific and engineering innovation, alongside developing their teamwork and business acumen.
Leanne, who has produced award-winning research in the realm of environmental science, said “This competition is a fantastic way to capture the attention of young minds and encourage them to explore the fantastic opportunities in the world of STEM, not least in the opportunity to compete at the world stage.
“The talent shown from students is phenomenal and they are a credit to the schools and communities they represent. I have no doubt many of this year’s participants will shape the future of engineering as so many of the past participants have gone on to do.”
You can catch the Finals of this exciting competition live on TG4 this Sunday at 8.30pm.
