Yas in Schools™

Where Tomorrows Champions Are Made

Yas in Schools™ is an international competition that challenges teams of school students to set up their own Formula 1 team and run it as a mini-enterprise project. They are responsible for managing budgets, marketing & branding, sourcing sponsorship and designing, manufacturing and racing a miniature gas-powered balsa-wood Formula 1 car. The UAE programme is based at Yas Marina Circuit’s F1 in Schools Centre of Excellence, which can be used as a learning resource by participating teams and also hired as a competition venue for internal school competitions.

Centre of Excellence

Yas Marima Circuit is the only Grand Prix circuit in the world to have a facility dedicated to all aspects of the F1 in Schools STEM Challenge. The Yas in Schools Centre of Excellence is also home for Formula Ethara and the Land Rover 4x4 Technology Challenge in the UAE.
