F1 in schools

F1 in Schools challenges teams of 3-6 students to design, manufacture and race their very own miniature Formula 1 cars. These cars are powered by gas canisters that slot into the back of the car. Teams have to build a real brand, create a team identity, raise sponsorship to fund the competition and provide a return on investment for sponsors. This competition provides students with a fast-paced and exciting introduction to STEM, as well as challenging them to work together as a multi-functional team.

Our Gasta Racing Team 2021/22 comprises Caoimhe O’Dwyer (CEO & Team Manager / Design Engineer), Ailbhe Wright (Sponsorship & Marketing Manager), Emily Feehan (Aerodynamics & CFD), Áine Jones (Design Engineer), Olivia Cosgrove (Merchandising & Design) and Maeve Begley (Graphic Designer).
