In order enter the championship, you should first have a group of 3-6 students. Then you should assign roles to every person based on their expertise. Ideally, one person should have one role to fulfil, but you might have to double up on your roles, depending on the number of people you have available. Below mentioned are the examples of the roles that can be covered by the members of the team.
Team Manager (maximum 1 person)
Responsible for managing the team, ensuring that the primary and back-up cars are ready for the finals. The team manager works closely with all members of the team, offering assistance where necessary.
• Resources Manager
Organises time, materials and equipment for designing and making the cars. They could be responsible for developing ideas regarding team marketing (presentation). The resources manager will need to liaise with all members to check tasks are progressing on time and offer additional help, if needed.
• Manufacturing Engineer
Responsible for advising team members on the manufacture of the car and the constraints of the machining process. Manufacturing engineers will need to liaise with the design engineers to report and help solve any problems with construction of the car.
• Design Engineer
Responsible for the styling and aerodynamic performance of the car design. Design engineers will need to liaise with the manufacturing engineers to ensure their ideas can be realised.
• Graphic Designer
Responsible for producing the colour schemes applied to the vehicle, including any special sponsorship decals, together with the final graphic renderings and any additional team marketing materials. The graphic designer will need to liaise with the design engineer to ensure any schemes will fit the shape of the vehicle and the resources manager for additional marketing development.
• If you are a group of students who want to participate in the competition from the same school, ask your school to write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to have you and your school on board.
• If you are a group of students from different schools, then write to us at email@example.com and we shall guide you through the registration process.

Leading a group of students through F1 in SchoolsTM and using this unique challenge to deliver STEM subjects both in and out of the class room, is just as rewarding for you as a school as it is for your students taking part. F1 in SchoolsTM can be used as an education tool or hook to engage your students in STEM subjects to give both them and yourself the opportunity to develop key skills such as communication, presenting and team work. This will form the foundation of their future in any career path they choose to follow. This exciting education initiative provides you as a school, the opportunity to run a real-life competition with your students where they follow the same processes real Formula One teams follow from their initial business plan through to their car design. They will be using Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, data analyses using CFD and drag calculation software, Computerised Numerical Control (CNC) machinery to manufacture their car and wind and smoke tunnels for testing. Finally they will race their car on our 24m F1 in Schools™ race track to see who has designed and manufactured the fastest car.
F1 in School™ has been able to enhance the reputation of the schools involved and increase the status of technology teaching at those schools. We have seen as a direct of implementing the program in other states an increase in the numbers of students choosing to undertake Design & Engineering subject, increased teacher enthusiasm and increased involvement and collaboration with Industry.
• If you wish to enrol with the F1 in Schools™ competition, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a presentation.

F1 in SchoolsTM is a not-for-profit educational organisation, which relies solely upon support and contributions from industry to be able to operate and deliver a World-class STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering& Maths) competition that engages with millions of students across the Globe. The aim of F1 in SchoolsTM is to provide a fun and hands-on STEM initiative that demonstrates many different levels of Science and Engineering, in a positive and attractive light. The challenge provides students with the opportunity to develop key skills such as; communication, presenting and team working, which will form the foundation of their future, in whichever career path they choose. The processes the student teams will follow are the same as those a real Formula One team will follow, from creating their initial business plan, to designing, making and racing their car. They will use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software and will analyse their designs using CFD and drag calculation software. They will then use Computerised Numerical Control (CNC) machinery to manufacture their car, before testing it in wind and smoke tunnels. Finally, they will race their car on our 20m F1 in SchoolsTM racetrack, to see who has designed and manufactured the fastest car.
As a sponsor, you will have the opportunity to be involved in this exciting STEM competition, from a regional level through to the Indian National Finals, or perhaps even as a global partner. The 2016 challenge reached and exceeded all expectations, with 30 countries producing 47 teams to compete at the 2016 World Finals in Texas. The current World Champions are Union Racing International a collaboration team from Germany & USA. This year, we are expanding further and hope to have even more countries taking part in the 2017 World Finals in Malaysia, in what will be a spectacular competition.
