Eighty-six participants, including students from Shuqun STEP Centre, Marsiling STEP Centre & Choa Chu Kang STEP Centre, had hands on experience in building Formula 1 cars and racing them at the end of a four half-day workshop, conducted from 19 November to 23 November.
The workshop helped to change perceptions of Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology by creating a fun and exciting learning environment for Indian youth to develop an informed view about careers in Engineering, Formula One, Science and Technology.
Jasmine Sangeetha, who attended the workshop, shared, “I really enjoyed myself and the workshop. I learnt how to assemble a F1 car and understood the speed at which F1 cars travel. The workshop has kindled interest in engineering for me.”
Prizes were given out on the ‘finale race day’ with categories including Best Car Design, Fastest Car in the Primary Category, Fastest Car in the Secondary Category and Best Solidworks Design. Winners took home trophies and each participant received a certificate for attending the workshop. At the end of the workshop, youths who won considered participating in the ‘F1 in Schools Technology Challenge’.
