F1 in Schools is a multidisciplinary, international technology competition, in which students of the age of 11 to 19 years develop a miniature Formula 1 racecar on the computer, manufacture it and send the car afterwards into running.
From the very beginning KIRCHHOFF Automotive supported the "Boreas Racing“ team from the Stenner-Gymnasium in Iserlohn financially as well as with technical know-how and looked together with the students forward with excitement to the final decision. The world championship „F1 in Schools“ this year takes place in advance of the last decisive Formula 1 race of the season and with regards to the assessment the team performance of construction, manufacture, reaction time, race car speed, business plan and presentation are essential - indeed as is the case for the "big".
For the KIRCHHOFF Group it is very important to introduce young people early and playfully to technology. Therefore, we support engagement for the development of automobiles and technology for motorsports already in schools in the same way as we do it in the fascinating adults motorsports.
