St. Brigid's College, Loughrea, Co. Galway are delighted to present supporters of our Victorum Racing team with an opportunity to help the team on their journey to the F1 in Schools world finals - David Monaghan, Deputy Principal.
Victorum Racing from St. Brigid's College in Loughrea, Co. Galway are Irish National F1 in Schools Champions for 2017 and they will represent IRELAND at the F1 in Schools World Finals in Kuala Lumpur this September.
F1 in Schools is recognised globally as the premier competition for young people promoting participation in STEM subjects and career paths. In this multi-disciplinary challenge we deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, design, analyse, manufacture, test, and then race our miniature CO2 powered F1 car. As well as the design and manufacture of our car, there is a huge business aspect to this competiton where we will be judged on Verbal Presentations, Portfolios, Marketing, Social Media, Pit Display and Team Identity. The Challenge inspires students to use IT to learn about physicis, aerodynamics, design, manufacture branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing, leadership/teamwork, media skills and financial strategy and apply them in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way. A major component of the F1 in Schools cmpetition requires teams to generate the funding to compete in every aspect of the competition entirely from their own business acumen.
Our Team mission is to show the world that Ireland and its young people can lead the way globally for engineering, science, business, marketing and innovative thinking. A major component of the F1 in Schools competiton requires teams to generate the funding to compete in every aspect of the competition entirely from their own business acumen. We must raise all the funding to cover our participation fees, competition costs, accomodation and flights over the coming months.
