F1 in Primary Schools Challenge

Prep 5 attend the F1 in Primary Schools Challenge regional finals in Ballymena on Tuesday 3rd February.  This STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) project created a lot of excitement as the girls worked together effectively in their teams to ensure their car, the pit stop, their portfolio and the verbal presentation was ready for judging.

Mrs Boyd was delighted to see the girls fulfil their roles as part of a team and watch the groups utilise many TSPCs (Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities) through this engaging and fun, Formula One topic.

Many thanks to our sponsors; Teamwear Ireland, The Blow Dry Bar, Templeton Robinson, Irvine Dental Clinic and the Brow Family. The girls promotional clothing from Teamwear Ireland was amazing and caught the eye of the judges! The funds given by the other sponsors enabled the girls to buy essential resources and materials to make their model F1 racing cars.
