A Grand Prix for Students

Nov 30, 2019
Teams of students from Greece and Cyprus took part in this year's F1 in Schools world finals. The finals of the international STEM competition took place from November 22 to 29, 2019, in Abu Dhabi, with 55 teams from around the world competing.

The Alacrity Dynamics, Arrow Racers, and Anemos Racing teams were created through partnerships between public and private schools across Greece, and the Pixel team brings together students from Greek and Cypriot schools. These teams took part in the competition with the support of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF).

Student team Arrow Racers won the “Fastest Car Award.” The price was awarded by former F1 champion Nico Rosberg.

Through the design and construction of small racing car models, students taking part in F1 in Schools gain knowledge and skills in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, entrepreneurship, marketing, and project management.

SNF has given past support to teams from 25 public schools in Greece, with the aim of encouraging more students to participate in the F1 in Schools program and hone their engineering and business skills.
