A SUMMER OF STEM: F1 ® IN SCHOOLS TO HOST UK NATIONAL FINAL AT UNIVERSITY OF LEEDS IN JUNE/JULY
We are delighted to announce that this year’s Lenovo UK National Final will be held at the fantastic University of Leeds on June 29th – July 1st. The three-day event will see over 50 teams from across the UK competing for a place on the podium and a coveted space at the 2024 Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals.
Covering ages 9 - 19, the Secondary Class will compete over the first two days, and the Primary Class will run over the final third day; with the winning teams assessed across a variety of areas – including car speed, engineering quality, brand identity, verbal presentation skills, and portfolio judging.
F1 in Schools’ UK Project Manager Tom Milner commented on the upcoming event, “We’re so excited to be hosting this year’s event at the University of Leeds. One of the most prestigious universities in the UK, with a globally renowned School of Mechanical Engineering, it really will be a delight and an inspiration for the students to spend time there this summer. Plus, it’s brilliant for F1 in Schools to host its UK National Final in its local region; Yorkshire is home to some fantastic STEM companies, and what better way to celebrate all it has to offer than with an event committed to finding and inspiring our next generation of future engineers and pioneers?”
