CLIP moves to the National Finals of the "F1 in Schools" challenge
After nine years, CLIP returns to the world's most significant Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) competition, F1 in Schools.   Last Thursday, Team Aeroflux (5 students in F11 and F12) and Team G4 Motorsport (6 students in F10) headed to the Porto (CATIM - Centro de Apoio Tecnológico à Indústria Metalomecânica) regional finals in Penafiel, competing against other 17 teams from the area.   The objective set for the day was to secure a ticket to the National stage of the competition, which is only granted to the top three teams in each region. After a day filled with intense emotions and fierce competition, we're proud to celebrate that both teams from CLIP will be moving to the next stage of the challenge. Team G4 Motorsport secured 3rd place, whilst Team Aeroflux brought home 2nd place, plus the awards for Best Engineering and Best Verbal Presentation.   The National finals are scheduled for July 3rd, with the three best teams securing access to the World Finals. Last year, the World Finals were held in Singapore from September 10th to 12th.   F1 in Schools is not just about speed; it's a thrilling journey of creativity, engineering prowess, and business acumen. Participants, typically aged 11-19, design and manufacture miniature Formula 1 cars, pushing the boundaries of aerodynamics and materials science. These scaled-down marvels are then put to the test on a 20-meter track, where every fraction of a second counts.   Beyond the race track, teams must also develop a comprehensive business plan, demonstrating their marketing strategies, budgeting skills, and sponsorship acquisition abilities. This aspect of the competition fosters entrepreneurship and real-world problem-solving, preparing the next generation of leaders for success in an ever-evolving global economy.   With regional and national competitions leading up to the World Finals, F1 in Schools is a platform for young talents to shine internationally. Winners not only claim prestigious titles but also earn scholarships, internships, and invaluable industry connections, propelling them towards exciting careers in STEM.
