BANGKOK, 30 July 2019 (NNT) - F1 in Schools is one of the most successful STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics) programmes and competitions in the world, and has to date involved over 20 million students in 44 countries.
Thailand attended the F1 in Schools World Finals in 2017 & 2018, when two teams participated the first year and one of them won the best Newcomer Award in 2017, while in 2018, three teams participated from three different schools, with the team from Amnuay Silp gaining the highest score in Asia and coming 6th overall.
The 2019 F1 in Schools World Finals Competition, will be taking place in Abu Dhabi towards the end of the year. Two teams from Thailand will be attending, they are: "Nakara Racing " from Amnuay Silpa School, and “Legacy” from the Singapore International School of Bangkok.
F1 in Schools is an exciting and dynamic challenge for students that involves setting up their own team to design, manufacture and race small F1 cars on a miniature race track. The competition gives students the chance to experience many of the fundamentals of running a business including team work, finance, planning, design, manufacturing and product testing, along with marketing and promoting the product, and making their work come to life in the race.
It is the long term goal of F1 in Schools in Thailand in partnership with Pensmith STEM International, to actively boost interest and participation amongst schools in Thailand, and for Thailand to win the F1 in Schools World Finals in the not too distant future.
