Formula 1 dreams inch closer for our Cowan House Boys.
By Tracey Wood
Our Cowan House Jaguar Primary School Grade 6 team (Yolo Molo) made up of Ross Froise, Jack Walters, Rohil Singh and Oliver Cornish cracked their need for speed as winners of the Jaguar Primary Schools Challenge Regional Event.

In awe of the surrounding Jaguars in the dealership showroom, Ross, our Team Manager; Jack, our Design Engineer; Rohil, our Graphic Designer; and Oliver, our Manufacturing Engineer, pitted their compressed air cylinder powered racing machine against those developed by a number of other schools’ teams and as with Formula 1 racing, the winner was decided by results in splits of one hundredths of a second.

The aim of the Jaguar Primary Schools’ Challenge is to provide a stimulating project to introduce leaners to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) related topics through the engagement of design and manufacturing of a race car. Each team is commissioned to research, design, manufacture, test, promote and race the fastest car possible. We are certainly looking forward to defending our title at next year’s event.
