Formula 1 whizz kids
Pupils from St Laurence’s Primary School, Kirkby have been testing their mental ability and having fun at the Formula 1 Project in Halewood.
The Formula 1 Project is a competition and series of workshops organised by Jaguar in which primary schools build Formula 1 cars from different materials.
Headteacher, Paul Cronin, said: “Over seven weeks, our children have been designing and testing their very own competition cars. They tested their cars speed and aerodynamics by using everyday appliances like hairdryers and fan’s.
“Our children visited the IAC components factory in Halewood where they were given lots of helpful information and tips on how to improve their cars, as well as a tour around the factory. “During the project, the children made a portfolio of their work as well as creating a pit wall, detailing each team member’s job and responsibilities in the project.
“As well as coming first in both the verbal presentation and the fastest car, our children were crowned overall winners in the regions final; as a result, they went on to representing Merseyside in the grand final in Coventry finishing fifteenth out of 36 schools.
