F1 in Schools

F1 in Schools is a global, multi-disciplinary competition, open to all secondary schools, that challenges secondary school students to design, build and race miniature compressed air powered balsa wood Formula 1 cars of the future. Student teams will compete against each other in a National Championship to determine the best-engineered and fastest car in Ireland.

Competitors will have an exciting educational experience, expressing their creativity, skills and team-working ability in a fun and positive way.

The F1 in Schools Technology Challenge is part of an international competition with Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone as patron.

The main objective of the competition is to raise the profile of technology, engineering and science across our secondary schools and by creating a fun and exciting learning environment for students to develop an informed view of careers in these areas.


Well done to all the teams that took part from our school last year. We won 'Best Engineered Car' & 3rd place in the Senior Category
