CPW is gold sponsor of the 8th High school of Chalandri, named GRECIA PREMIO in the F1 in Schools national Competition. The best teams of Greece will compete against teams from all over the world to be crowned the F1 in Schools™ world champions.
The F1 in Schools Competition, under the official F1 organization, is a challenge targeted to 9-19 years old kids/students, offering a way to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related subjects in an exciting way of achieving great results. A Greek school had managed to become World Champion in 2016.
The main idea is evolved around the designing and making of a 1:20 Formula 1 scale model car. But it is not only that, as there are many more parameters that the participants have to take into consideration. Team members work on variety of issues to convert ideas into reality, from learning to use CAD/CAM software and explore materials and CNC manufacturing to optimize their design and make the fastest model car, to create the strategy and find the financing through sponsors.
The team consists of four 17 year old students with a vision and a big dream.
The only thing we can do is to support them, going after their dreams.
