F1 in Schools Singapore | FRAMEWORK

FRAMEWORK

INNOVATION CENTRE

The F1 in Schools Innovation Centre is critical in providing the infrastructure for the entire F1 in Schools programme. By setting up the Innovation Centre, the F1 in Schools Experience Workshop can then be made available to all students in the school.

The F1 in Schools Innovation Centre will provide the students hands-on experience on the CAM or manufacturing component of the F1 in Schools programme and act as the catalyst for Innovation and Enterprise with the right environment.

EXPERIENCE WORKSHOP

The F1 in Schools Experience Workshop is a 4 half-day workshop focusing on the design and manufacturing elements of the F1 in Schools Programme.

The F1 in Schools Experience Workshop shares sample portfolios, design concepts, how a virtual wind tunnel works, how an actual wind tunnel works and how the AutoDesk software works with the students. Subsequently, students are taught how to design their own D or R-type F1 race car.

Students are then exposed to the manufacturing software and begin their own car manufacturing process. After which, they will be shown how to properly sand the car and the coating process. After students have done up the final finishing of the car, they will participate in a race and evaluation process will take place.

At the end of the F1 in Schools Experience Workshop, students will receive certification and will also be able to bring their own car home.

INTEGRATED CURRICULUM

Schools can adapt the F1 in Schools Programme into their school curriculum as they see fit. The elements in the F1 in Schools Programme can be readily incorporated as part of the students learning in IT, Design and Technology, Physics, English and so forth.

Schools can also adapt the F1 in Schools Experience Workshop into their IPW where students are offered a chance to apply what they have learnt in the various subjects under an F1 in Schools theme.

COMPETITIONS

THE FORMULA ONEā„¢ TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGE in Singapore will be held on a zonal level before progressing into the finals. The winning team will represent Singapore to vie for the coveted Bernie Ecclestone Trophy at the F1 in Schools World Championship held yearly in different countries.
