Hunter Valley school continues world dominance in STEM
Mount View High School, Cessnock, has again proven why it is one of the state's top ranked Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics learning centres by winning an award at the world's largest STEM competition.
At a star studded event in Kuala Lumpur attended by Formula One racing "boss" Chase Carey and representatives from the various Formula One teams, the year 10 and 11 students Liam Whiteley, Daniel Lambkin, Connor Minchinton and Jack
Stephenson walked onstage at the 2017 World Finals of the F1inSchools STEM Challenge. They received the Sponsorship and Marketing Award.
Calling themselves Envisity, they collaborated with a school in Tasmania to design and make a miniature 80 km/h F1 car, using space age CAD/CAM and virtual wind tunnel software.
Envisity took on 50 teams from 25 other nations. F1inSchools is a competition involving over nine million students from more than 17,000 schools around the world.
Mount View High School has been a regular representative of NSW at the F1inSchools STEM Challenge National Finals, and this year it earned a place in Team Australia.
