If Dynamic Speed brought you to this page wondering what the club was supporting, let us tell you a little about this team of amazing girls. Dynamic Speed is a team of young girls from Larne High School who entered the F1 in Schools competition and became 2017 Northern Ireland regional champions. For the last year, the team has been working hard to design a car to enter the Formula 1 in Schools competition. This has involved developing their engineering skills to design and build the fastest car possible. On Wednesday 22nd March 2017, the team went to the Northern Ireland finals. During the day, as well as racing the car, they set up a pit display, made a presentation to a panel of judges and had an interview with an engineering panel. They were delighted to win awards for the fastest Formula 1 car, the best engineered car and to become overall Northern Ireland champions.
What is F1 in Schools
F1 in Schools is the only truly global educational programme that raises awareness of STEM and Formula One among students and school children in every region, in every country, on every continent.
Offering a way to learn Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) related subjects in such an exciting way is achieving great results and we know we are increasing the intake of students into Engineering careers. We are privileged to have the support of the Formula One™ community – in particular Mr Ecclestone at FOM and, of course, the Formula One™ teams who make our students welcome in the F1™ paddock and in their factories.
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 One teams.
