CNC stands for Computer Numerical Control . CNC Machines are used to manufacture the F1 cars designed by students and bring them to life. CAM stands for Computer Aided Manufacturing. CAM allows design engineers to make a product by generating toolpaths. This course shall help you understand the functioning of a CNC Machine and how will your 3D design be actually manufactured on a CNC Machine. Understand the functioning of machine, understand various machining plans, tool paths, stepover, and the types of equipment used in a CNC Machining process. This course shall teach you Design & Technology in depth and help you understand how industrial design industry works. An interesting fact, All Formula One teams manufacture their own car parts using CNC Machines.
F1 in Schools™ is the World’s Largest STEM Challenge where school students aged between 9-19 years design miniature Formula1 cars using CAD/CAM tools followed by manufacturing their designs on a CNC machine. The students also develop various life skills like project management, soft skills, problem solving and critical thinking. The program inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, manufacture, branding, graphics, sponsorship, marketing, leadership/teamwork, media skills and financial strategy, and apply them in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way.
Spanning age ranges of 9 to 19 our main objective is to help change the perceptions of science, technology, engineering and math by creating a fun and exciting learning environment for young people to develop an informed view about careers in engineering, Formula 1, science, marketing and technology.
There are many success stories who have actually come through our initiative and have gone on to achieve significant outcomes in their lives including positions in Formula 1 teams.
