And they’re off!! The Formula 1 in Schools Competition is off the line this afternoon at Nexus. Mr Rees and 12 students in Nexus 7 and 8 have begun designing their CO2 powered micro-F1 cars. The students have formed three F1 teams; Tidal, Kronos and Geometrix. They have strict restrictions on the shape, size and mass of their cars.
The race to the finish line is on – later in the year the students will have to race their cars and present their designs in a special F1 testing event in Devon. Good luck teams!
