Guests: Slipstream, a Formula One in Schools team based out of Bradenton, Manatee County. They are the U.S. National Champions and will be representing the USA at the F1 in Schools World Finals in Abu Dhabi this November.

The team includes five students: Merritt Kendzior, a sophomore at Southeast High School in Bradenton, Florida. She is the Team Manager and Design Engineer for Slipstream. The rest of the team members are Madelyn Kumar and Victoria Sinclair from Southeast High School and Domenic Aluise and Hannah Figueras from Braden River High School. Formula One in Schools is the largest STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) competition in the world, encompassing 44 countries and over 20 million students worldwide. We compete annually at county, state, national and international competitions.

F1 in Schools is a global multi-disciplinary program where teams of students aged 9 to 19 form their own "F1 teams", essentially simulating real companies. We utilize a variety of cutting-edge software to design, test, analyze, and manufacture 1/20 scale balsa formula one cars powered by CO2 cartridges; including the latest industry certified and used programs. Teams must also create a walk-in pit display, 20 page portfolio, ten minute verbal presentation, undergo a thirty minute engineering interview, along with developing marketing, branding, innovative team identity, social media and outreach to distinguish themselves from the competition. Members spend all year in preparation for the competition and put in thousands of hours to their teams. In addition to the challenge, we must raise all of the necessary funds to cover the costs of competition through sponsorships and in-kind donations. We must also market our team to the community and spread the word through community outreach.

The mission of F1 in Schools is to give students real world exposure and experience. Put simply, we are managing our own company! This challenge creates a realistic and powerful learning environment for young people to develop an informed view of what the future of innovation holds in the industry and beyond.
