MUNER announces its collaboration with F1 In Schools
MUNER is proud to announce its collaboration with F1 In Schools, a challenging multidisciplinary project in which teams of High Schools students between the ages of 15 and 19 work together to design, develop and build a miniature compressed air powered F1 car.
Teams must raise Sponsorship and manage budget to fund research, travel and accommodation while they learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding & marketing.
F1 In Schools, already known internationally for several years, was born in its Italian version in Fornovo di Taro in 2021: thanks to the non profit organization Innovation Farm, located in the heart of the Motor Valley, this initiative is coming to life on the national territory and is growing year by year in terms of the number of schools, Teams and regions involved and the quality of the technologies used.
👉 The Innovation Farm is the headquarter for the F1 in schools italian championship but it is also a technical and manufacturing center that can provide Teams materials and machines to build the cars and also technical tutoring.
In collaboration with Dallara, the following services are made available to the teams: tutoring, car manufacturing, track testing and educational workshops.
🏎 The challenge:
📍Each team of 3 to 6 students creates their own Formula 1 in schools team in all its aspects: creation of the team identity, brand, communication plan, business plan, of their miniature prototypes.
📍Each team, which must have between three and six members, is given a set of rules for the competition and a technical specification for the construction of the cars. They set up a plan, draw up a budget and find sponsors and companies to work with. Using CAD software, the teams design a miniature F1 car, which is virtually aerodynamically tested using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software.
📍Finally, CNC machines and 3D printers are used to build the cars, which are tested in a smoke wind tunnel and on a 24 meters track.
💥The chance to represent Italy at the F1 In Schools World Finals is up for grabs!
We strongly believe that passion can be transmitted from a very young age: we sincerely hope that this experience will be the first spark for these young people that will perhaps lead them to a career in motorsport and automotive engineering!
