Four students from Mount View High School in Cessnock are off to the F1 in Schools world championships in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. They are the NSW champions whose fourth place in the national championships helped earn them a wild card entry to September's event.
Principal Desley Pfeffer is thrilled with their success. "The technical and collaborative effort the team has put in, not to mention sheer hard work, has really paid off this year," said Ms Pfeffer.
"It's an extremely engaging challenge, so the competition is fierce at all levels - local, state, national and international."
The F1 in Schools Technology Challenge is the world's largest secondary school technology program. Teams of students design, test and make miniature F1 cars capable of 80 km/h, but also need excellent skills in teamwork, leadership, management and presentation.
The patron is the Formula 1 motor racing organisation, and the host in Australia and New Zealand is the Re-Engineering Australia Foundation.
Team members Daniel Lambkin and Connor Minchinton with the racing cars.
