At Yas Marina Circuit we believe there are many valuable learning experiences for students through participation in our schools programs which are inspired by the world of Formula One. Behind every champion F1 race driver is a champion F1 race team. Each team member has a very important role to play in helping the team and driver become champions. They are highly skilled in many fields – Design, Engineering, Manufacturing, Marketing, Sponsorship, Problem solving and most importantly team work.

Each of our programs aim to help students develop themselves in these areas whilst having a lot of fun along the way! Learning becomes relevant, providing students with an insight into exciting careers related to Science, Engineering, Design, Manufacturing, Marketing and Graphics.
