Race to the F1 Finish Line

Balga Senior High School, WA

Your chance to join our race to the finish line!

We need your support to give our F1 in School Professional Senior team the chance to experience the thrill and excitement of representing WA in the National F1 Championship in Melbourne as a Wildcard Entry. We want to reward them for their success in the State Finals, where they won the Senior Professional Class and further engage and excite these students so they will want to continue pursuing a career in a STEM-related industry. The students in this team all speak English as their second language and we want to show the students that their background and circumstances does not limit their pursuit of a higher education if they so choose. 

The F1 in Schools STEM Challenge assists students with the transition to the world of work and bridges the gap between high schools, TAFE and universities. Each year more than 17,000 schools in 44 nations take on the challenge of developing the world’s fastest miniature Formula 1 car. The Challenge provides an opportunity for the students to gain relevant skills needed in the workplace such as in problem solving, project management, communication, presentation, teamwork, innovation, self-promotion, marketing, entrepreneurial skills and especially collaboration. 

The benefits are innumerable: (i) National exposure to the students in the F1 Professional Senior team, (ii) teaching and learning experience for the teachers accompanying the student, (iii) flow on effect from the excitement and energy generated by our team competing in the National F1 finals to the school population and (iv) finally a chance for our students at the Nationals to observe a team that will go on to represent Australia in the World F1 competition and see what they need to aim for in the future.

We need your support to raise the funds needed to cover airfares, accommodation and subsistence allowance for 5 students and 3 teachers for at least 5 nights and 6 days.

Thank you for supporting the students from Balga Senior High School.

All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.
