Inspiring Generation Z
The nonprofit F1® in Schools takes Formula 1 into the classroom, delivering exciting STEM learning opportunities, inspiring the next generation to embrace careers in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics.
Held from June 4 to 8, the World Finals combined a live racing event from the U.K. with appropriately powered zoom presentations to create an immersive, interactive, world-class competition. Welcoming the finalists at the event’s opening session, Aramco president and CEO Amin Nasser said, “The skills you have learned in this competition are ones that will last a lifetime. Not just in engineering or in project management, but in how to share your ideas. Making it all the way to the world finals is a great achievement. The experience you have gained will benefit you as you go on to do even bigger things.”
World champions crowned
The student teams attended the event virtually through 15 interactive zoom sessions, covering four different time zones. Across the packed five-day schedule, judged activities, head-to- head racing, and technical analysis concluded with the crowning of the new world champions, the British team “Britannia Red” from Robert Mary’s School — no small feat with such worldwide talent on display. With University College London Mechanical Engineering scholarships awarded to the winners, as well as the prized F1® in Schools World Champions trophy, Britannia Red shared their victory with their school support team, friends, and family- a truly life changing event.
Second place went to the Irish team “Quintolux” from St. Brigid’s College. Third place went to the Australian team “Nebula Racing” from Wesley College.
