George loved Motor Racing….and he loved his time at Tarporley High School (mostly!)….so a project that puts the two in the same sentence is definitely going to have the backing of The George Heath Foundation.
The intention, to start with, is build the vehicles and use gravity to power them down a tilted track and compete ‘in house’.
In the future then full CO2 and ‘Start Line’ kits with a target of entering into regional and national events will be purchased.
Initially, ‘F1 in Schools’ Entry Kit for a Group (which would allow for x10 teams with 3-6 pupils in a team) including an ISO Sketch tool and the regulation parts to build a car is being provided. Pupils will have a set of regulations and design brief to follow and will be scored over multiple aspects from design, build and presentation skills with the ultimate aim of increasing interest in STEM subjects.
Watch this space for the Adrian Neweys of the future!
