A TEAM of Formula 1 fanatics from Neale-Wade Community College, March, demonstrated their technical wizardry as they won two trophies at this year’s UK F1 in Schools Challenge.
‘Team Revolution’, made up of Year 9 pupils Josh Ingram, Ioan Foreman, Jordan Saward, Morgan Chappell and Stephen Cobb, triumphed at the National Finals, held at the ExCel Centre, London.
In the ‘Bloodhound’ SSC (Super Sonic Car) Class, their communication skills and technical knowledge dazzled the judges and earned them national trophies for ‘Best Verbal Presentation’ and ‘Best Portfolio’.
The F1 in Schools Challenge involves teams from schools across the country, and also runs internationally in more than 40 countries around the world.
The competition involves ‘cutting edge’ computer aided 3-D design, testing, engineering, manufacture and racing of CO2 gas-powered micro F1 and ‘Bloodhound’ (built for maximum speed) cars.
