F1 IN SCHOOLs

F1 in Schools™ is the foremost STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) competition in the World. Participating teams are given the task to design, manufacture, and race a 1/20th scale car against other schools. The teams must focus not only on the car, but on their branding and identity, portfolios showcasing their work, and a team pit display as well. This competition teaches students life long skills and provides them with individual traits and qualities, defining their future careers and aspirations.
 

dARK MATTER

"Like Nothing On Earth"

Dark Matter values the importance of accountability, responsibility, team unity, discipline, mental toughness, self-confidence, sportsmanship, and a desire to compete fairly. We strive to be a team that is like nothing on earth. Dark Matter has operated its manufacturing business as a partnership between five entrepreneurs (Caed Lawson, Ali Savage, Sanjay Sabu, Reynold Chu, Erin Bennett, and Indianna Lawson) who together, have collaborated using their individual skills and techniques. Throughout the challenge, Dark Matter has needed to partner with external organisations for much-needed capital (sponsorship); intellectual and critical information gathering, and provision of resources. We would like to thank our sponsors, for making this possible with the funding and assistance needed for our objectives to be completed effectively.
