Softworks School Time


Softworks are delighted to be sponsoring Presentation College Carlow’s F1 Team! 

The F1 in Schools competition is an international competition for secondary level schools. This stimulating competition provides an exciting yet challenging education experience through the magnetic appeal of Formula One. Working in teams of 3 and 6, each student is assigned roles. The team prepares a business plan, develops a budget and raises sponsorship. This encourages Teams to collaborate with Industry and forge business links. The Teams are then judged on car speed, as well as supporting evidence of their design, verbal presentation and marketing display stand in ‘the pits’.

Teams compete regionally, nationally and internationally for the Bernie Ecclestone F1 in Schools World Championship Trophy!

Softworks are happy to be sponsoring Team Quark from Presentation College Carlow who not only qualified for the National Finals but were also invited to the World Finals which is taking place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in September 2011. The global F1 in Schools Competition is an extremely worthwhile initiative for Softworks to sponsor as it aims to help change the perceptions of science, technology, engineering and mathematics by creating a fun and exciting learning environment for young people to develop an informed view about careers in engineering, science, marketing and technology.
