F1 in Schools
For top middle and high-school students, this is the engineering opportunity of a lifetime—designing, building, and racing their very own model Formula One® (F1) race cars.
F1 in Schools began in England in 2000 as a way to raise the profile of engineering as a career option, and to assist with the teaching of the subject in schools and colleges. Since then, more than 2 million students worldwide have participated in regional, national, and international races.
Let SOLIDWORKS help your team design a faster car.
F1 in Schools teams use many of the same tools that pro racecar designers use – including 3D CAD software. That way, they can create cars that reach speeds beyond the reach of even world-champion F1 cars.
Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS Corp. provides F1 in Schools teams with SOLIDWORKS® FloXpress™ software for virtual wind-tunnel testing. Because the software is simple for students to learn and use, they find it easier to understand auto design concepts as well.
