F1 in Schools
The Formula 1 in Schools program replicates the world of a Formula One team, where groups of students follow a pathway of engineering and manufacturing disciplines: design, analyse, test, make and race. The miniature Formula 1 cars are propelled by a CO₂ canister down a straight 20-metre-long track, generating speeds of up to 80km/h.
This program aims to develop skills in problem solving, project management, communication, presentation, teamwork, innovation, self-promotion, collaboration, marketing and entrepreneurialism which is in demand by industries all over the world.
Since 2018, Charles Campbell College has been the most successful school in South Australia. We have had a team win the State Finals in all of the divisions and qualify for the National Finals. In 2023, our first team (Team Propulsion) represented our College and Australia at the World Finals after placing 2nd at the National Finals in the Professional Class. Team Propulsion finished World Champion Runners Up and won the Best Engineered Car award.
