What is F1 in Schools?

F1 in Schools is a global educational program that challenges students to design, analyze, manufacture, test, and race miniature, compressed-air powered Formula 1 cars. It aims to promote STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) learning in an exciting and engaging way. Founded in 1999, the program has reached millions of students worldwide, fostering innovation and a passion for engineering and technology.

ReUSE Revamp, a social enterprise based in Mauritius, is dedicated to sustainability, the circular economy, and digital empowerment. By actively reducing e-waste, particularly laptops, we implement and promote low-carbon footprint solutions. Our initiatives empower communities through practical training workshops and raise awareness about environmental issues. Beyond bridging the digital divide, we aim to address the AI divide, ensuring that everyone has access to advanced technologies. Through our efforts, we make technology and STEM programs more affordable and enjoyable, creating valuable opportunities for communities. ReUSE Revamp is committed to fostering innovation and education.

In collaboration with the U.S. Embassy, ReUSE Revamp will be launching the F1 in Schools program at the American Maker Space situated at the Rajiv Gandhi Science Center in Bell Village. This initiative underscores our commitment to fostering innovation and education.
