STEM Day @ McCarthy Catholic College

STEM Day

On the day students engaged in a STEM project, including the Formula 1 in Schools program. Students worked together in teams to design, make and participate in a range of experiences. Formula 1 in Schools engages students in a range of practical tasks and challenges, ending in racing against other teams, testing their cars speed and aerodynamics.

The day combined Science, Mathematics, Engineering and Technology to make a Formula 1 Car. Students were immersed in the science and mathematics behind speed and safety on roads, following on with the construction and racing of their cars. The students were challenged in each experience with highly practical and engaging tasks, culminating in an afternoon finalist challenge. Click here to see more photos.
