What an incredible day we had on Saturday at the Birmingham NEC. We are all extremely proud of the children in what has been a fantastic achievement in even being able to compete in the national finals of Formula 1 in Schools!!! To bring home some silverware too is wonderful - The Golden Eagles won the Judges Choice Award with a special mention for their outstanding communication throughout the day.

Both teams worked really hard in some very challenging tasks - racing, design presentation, formal presentation, pit design, live YouTube interviews… some very nerve-racking encounters!!! There was even some free time to enjoy the international Autosport show.

A huge well done to all the children who have been on the F1 in Schools journey, from the first session of our after-school activity club, to competing at regionals and everything in between…

The project aims to sow the seeds of STEM learning at an early age, encouraging pupils to develop knowledge and skills through practical, hands-on activities. I was so proud to see the children showcasing this knowledge confidently in front of the judges.
