Recently, five Raffles Girls’ School students represented Singapore by taking part in the F1 Schools world finals, where they were tasked with building a miniature car to race against competitor students from other schools around the world.
The competition tests students’ ability in the STEM subjects, namely, science, technology, engineering, mathematics, as well as their creativity in design.
Cars were built according to detailed guidelines using 3D computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacturing software.
The RGS team raced eight times over two days against teams from the US and Germany.
The girls won an award for their pit booth display, which showcased their car and other work they had done throughout the project.
