"F1® in Schools" is a global educational program that aims to raise awareness of STEM and Formula 1® among school students in every region, country and continent. Students are challenged and inspired through a STEM-based learning program covering topics such as physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacturing, branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing,
leadership/teamwork, media skills and financial strategy. The students will then apply what they learn in a practical, imaginative, exciting and competitive environment that echoes a scaled-down version of an F1® team.
F1 in Schools Over the Years
Aramco announced its plan to sponsor F1® in Schools as a title partner back in 2019. In 2021 Saudi Aramco CEO Amin Nasser announced that Saudi students would participate for the first time in the Global Finals, which were held in the UK in 2022. Through the support of Saudi Aramco’s largest CSR initiative – The King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra) – the program was piloted and delivered in Saudi Arabia
The pilot program started in the 2021-2022 season. It created its first training hub in partnership with King Fahd University for Petroleum and Minerals (KFUPM). The initial cohort of 18 male and female students was drawn from public and private schools through a series of selection criteria. The training hubs for the program included specialist facilitators and a state-of-the-art research and development lab. The students went through an intensive training program with three teams chosen to go to the global final where they won the “Best Newcomers Award” in 2022.
