F1 in Schools

Engadine High School

F1 in Schools Car Challenge

The F1 in Schools™ Technology Challenge is the world’s largest secondary school technology program. It involves over nine million students from 17,000 schools in 31 nations. Engadine High has been national champions in two consecutive years and competed at the World Titles in Abu Dhabi and Texas!

Teams of 3-5 students from Years 7-12 use real world 3Dimensional CAD/CAM technologies to design, test, manufacture and race miniature CO2 powered balsa wood Formula 1 cars.

The project was established as a way of generating interest in Engineering and Manufacturing related trades and professions. Engadine High school has been involved in the project from its inception and has historically shown superior design, manufacturing and marketing skills.

Our ongoing interest in this extraordinary competition has led to significant investment in to engineering at Engadine High. We have purchased a Denford CNC Router; Laser Cutter and several 3D printers. We have also modified our rooms to incorporate a dedicated computer lab to support engineering software, located adjacent to our Engineering Centre.

Our major sponsors are PAYCE the Australian Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and Engadine Rotary.
