STEMCymru yw partner swyddogol F1 mewn Ysgolion yng Nghymru


 


 

 

Mae’r gystadleuaeth F1 mewn Ysgolion yn cynnwys timau o fyfyrwyr yn dylunio a chynhyrchu model o gar rasio F1 sy’n defnyddio C02 gan ddefnyddio meddalwedd dylunio a thechnegau gweithgynhyrchu cyfrifiadurol soffistigedig (CAD/CAM).  Mae timau’n cystadlu am wobrau mawreddog gyda’r cyfle o gynrychioli Cymru yn y Rowndiau Terfynol Cenedlaethol a’r Byd. Wedi'i rannu'n 3 dosbarth: Mynediad, Datblygiad a Phroffesiynol; mae timau'n cael eu hasesu ar gyflymder y car, dylunio peirianneg, datblygu, deunyddiau hyrwyddo, arddangosfeydd pwll a chyflwyniad llafar.
Gall ysgolion gynnwys cynifer o ddisgyblion ag y dymunant a gallant gofrestru tri thîm o hyd at chwech o fyfyrwyr yn rowndiau rhanbarthol Cymru. Mae’r her yn ysbrydoli myfyrwyr i ddatblygu eu sgiliau STEM a dysgu am ffiseg, aerodynameg, dylunio, gweithgynhyrchu, brandio, graffeg, nawdd, marchnata, arweinyddiaeth/gwaith tîm, sgiliau’r cyfryngau a strategaeth ariannol, a’u defnyddio mewn ffordd ymarferol, ddychmygol, gystadleuol a chyffrous.  
Gall EESW STEMCymru hefyd ddarparu diwrnodau rasio yn yr ysgol, wedi'u teilwra i'ch anghenion. Gall hyn gynnwys dosbarthiadau cyfan neu grwpiau blwyddyn a gellir ei gyflwyno yn neuadd eich ysgol. Yna gellir dewis timau buddugol i fynychu'r rowndiau terfynol rhanbarthol.

Aerodynamics & Wind Tunnel Testing

Would your team benefit from a session on aerodynamics and the chance to experiment with a scale size Wind Tunnel? Or perhaps your team have already manufactured their car and are looking to test it to see how well it performs?
EESW can provide wind tunnel testing either at our manufacturing centre or in the classroom, where pupils can learn how to improve the aerodynamics of their cars and turn great designs into winning designs.

 

 


 

EESW Manufacturing Centres for F1 in Schools

Welsh teams taking part in the F1 in Schools challenge are eligible to have a car manufactured free of charge by EESW or Coleg Menai.
Teams are given the opportunity to visit their local centre to see their cars being manufactured in person and even take part in the process. For teams that are unable to visit, they can simply send their finished designs directly to us where they will be manufactured and returned by post.
For the 2021/22 season EESW has teamed up with Coleg Menai to provide a choice of 3 manufacturing centres across Wales.
The Centres are located in the following areas:
- South Wales EESW Office at Waterton Technology Centre, Bridgend
- North Wales EESW Office at Blessed William Davies Catholic Primary School, Llandudno                                                                                                 
       or New for 2021/22 Coleg Menai Campus, Llangefni
Contact us at info@stemcymru.org.uk to speak to your local manufacturing centre today!

 

Where to Start


Check out EESW's resources here or contact us directly here to introduce you and your students to the F1 in Schools project. You can also see details of how this program meets the progression steps for the Welsh National Curriculum on our resources page.
Once registered, you will have access to our full range of CAD video tutorials and PDF guides, which take students from downloading the free CAD software to designing, assembling and rendering their own F1 car.
These guides can be an exciting activity to engage students over a longer period or if you would like a quick introduction to F1 in schools you can check out our 'F1 in a day' guide here.
Need extra support? EESW can provide support visits to your school to ensure you and your pupils have all the support you require.

"The F1 in schools competition has provided the department and the school with a fantastic focus for a range of pupils who are technically minded, creative and have an interest in business. For the last few months the students have immersed themselves every lunchtime in designing concepts, learning how to use 3D CAD, planning activities, raising money through contacting sponsors and manufacturing the race cars. This is the third year the school has competed and the competition is becoming ever more popular."

Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Bro Myrddin
"Pupils are engaged from the moment they start the project, real life skills that enhance their learning from the get go. Teams tackle challenges that test resilience and innovation, whilst developing teamwork and collaboration with businesses and manufacturers to create the perfect car.
Initial skills learnt within this challenge allow the pupils to work with others and learn about compromise and patience.
The enterprise and engineering aspects of the task allow pupils to research and develop knowledge of real problems that relate to the F1 world."
