Students from McCarthy Catholic College, Emu Plains excelled in the F1 in Schools Technology Challenge held recently.


The F1 in Schools Technology Challenge is the world’s largest secondary school technology program. It involves over nine million students from 17,000 schools in 31 nations.

At the State championships, the Year 7 team received an encouragement award and the Year 7/8 team was awarded Best Engineered Car, Best Portfolio, State Runner Up and were also selected as the wild card entry for the national final to be held at the Melbourne Grand Prix in 2015.

Principal Robyn Meddows said the F1 in Schools program is a holistic learning program which focuses on developing long term employability skills. ‘Students learn leadership, team building, project management, business planning, public speaking, marketing, collaboration, writing and presentation skills which will benefit them for the rest of their education and into their future careers,’ said Robyn.

Each year the F1 in Schools program engages more than 40,000 high school students in Australia and delivers industry-standard technology into schools which is made available to a further 300,000 students outside the program.
