GURUGRAM, India, Aug. 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- ALP Group announced that its proud to sponsor Team Blaze that has made it to World Finals in Singapore – in F1 for Schools competition.
It's a team of four 15 year olds, 3 of them are girls, that have made it to the finals of one of the world's most difficult - F1 in Schools competition.
F1 Racing is one of the most followed and hugely popular sport across the world. It's adrenalin rush for fans, engineering marvel and test of human grit for teams participating. Thus was born `F1 for Schools' to capitalize the popularity of the sport amongst youth. With 200,000 students participating from 42 different countries, F1 in schools is the biggest STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) competition in the world in which teams of students – (under 19) deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, Design, Research and Develop, Analyse, Manufacture, Test, and then Race cars made from F1 model block.
This almost seemingly incredible, feat has been achieved by Amira and her Team Blaze, hailing from Gurugram, students of British School, who have made it to the world finals, as their 'Team Blaze' were the National Champions in India, and are amongst the top 10 teams in the world, in this F1 competition.
Who would have thought that an Indian team of predominantly 15 year old girls would take on, challenge, and excel against an internationally macho sports fraternity of 18-19 year old boys. Team Blaze has received an overwhelming support for their 'F1' Finals from schools across India, and from celebrities as well. From the Hon. Member of Parliament Ms. Hema Malani, to Mr Gautam Adani, to The British High Commissioner, and from TED forum where they had given a talk to popularize STEM education, have all wished them Good Luck for their final race on 9th September in Singapore.
While Amira, Jasmeh, Aryan and Shrishti as Team Blaze, promote the cause of STEM education in girls, and stand for sustainable choices in life, they also symbolize the 'spirit of success' to Indian teenagers today. Wishing them glory and success as it's a team that shall make India proud.
