RDA Sydney puts students in the fast lane
Published: 22nd March 2011
RDA Sydney was recently a proud sponsor of the F1 in Schools Australia 2010 Season National Final, which was held in Sydney on 16-17 March 2011.
F1 in Schools is the world's largest STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) program, involving more than nine million high school students in 22 nations.
Run in Australia by the not-for-profit organisation Re-Engineering Australia Foundation, participating students are required to design an F1 car, utilising skills of innovation, design, engineering, collaboration, public speaking and marketing.
The program inspires, equips and prepares young people for technology-based careers and aims to promote a 'know no boundaries' attitude.
The winners of the national final will head to the World Championships in Malaysia later this year.
RDA Sydney supported this event by hosting an industry forum titled 'Future Innovative Capacity', which introduced industry to the program by highlighting the younger generation's skills and innovation, and addressed key issues that require development to generate growth in this industry.
