F1 in Schools at Thurston

F1 in Schools ChallengeStaff and students at Thurston Community College's Design Technology Department are celebrating after securing funding to take part in the F1 in Schools Challenge.

The challenge, sponsored by The William and Ellen Vinten Trust, will see the students compete with other youngsters across the globe to run a model Formula 1 team, which will involved raising money, designing a car, developing engineering solutions, wind tunnel testing and finally racing.

Thurston will begin by hosting a competition for local schools, before staring work to compete in the regional and national finals next year.
