Design and Technology – F1 – Extra-Curricular

F1 in Schools is an International STEM competition where teams of 3-6 students have to design and manufacture a miniature car using CAD/CAM design tools.  The cars are powered by CO2 cartridges, and they are timed from the moment they are launched to when they pass the finish line.

This is an exciting competition, and Leith Academy entered their first team, Falcon Flow, this year.  This year we have three teams working on their designs, ready to take part in the competition.

F1 in Schools is an exciting competition that can lead to many opportunities in a range of areas: design,  engineering, graphics, project management, computing and business.
