Organised by the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) and F1 in Schools Hong Kong, the “F1 in Schools” Training Series and Competition (the Competition) 2022 – 2023 aims to encourage the Hong Kong secondary academia to unleash creativity into developing innovative products, and to promote active participation in global STEM events. Through participating in a series of training workshops, students will further sharpen their capabilities in engineering-related fields, and apply what they have learned into designing and fabricating their very own scale-down F1 car models. Teams will then compete with one another in a speed test, the winning teams will represent Hong Kong in an overseas competition. By introducing the “F1 in Schools” global educational programme to the local community, this event strives to pave the way for Hong Kong’s STEM education towards greater diversity and internationalization. This event is supported by the General Support Programme (GSP) of the Innovation and Technology Fund.

“F1 in Schools”Training Series and Competition centers around the theme of the acclaimed Formula One World Championship. Students will participate in a series of engineering-oriented STEM training courses that strengthens their understanding towards the fields of IT and engineering. Students will then create their own scale-down F1 car models and participate in international competitions.
We encourage participants to fabricate their models by incorporating innovative technology and creative media through the lens of tech entrepreneurs. Students could deploy CAD and CAM software to design, manufacture and test their car models, it is also advisable to deploy 3D rendering technology to render car design on posters, product video, and even AR/VR experiences. Ultimately, students should aim at applying what they have learned in an original, thrilling way.
Ø Teams are considered the fundamental units of the Competition. Each team consists of six F2-5 students.
Ø Participants should be secondary school students in the 2022/23 school year.
Ø Those who are involved in the scale-down F1 car model design and production processes must be the participants in the Competition.
Ø The idea and contents of the entries must conform to the theme of the Competition.
Ø Each team can only submit one entry in the 1st and final round of the Competition; failing which, the participating team will be disqualified.
Ø Participating schools and participants must ensure that their entries do not contain any materials that are obscene, violent, pornographic, defamatory, indecent, disparaging, plagiarised or contents that are controversial and inappropriate, and do not breach the laws of the HKSAR; failing which, the participating team will be disqualified.
