In the Palmer Foundation Engineering Village we're inspiring new generations of young people to follow careers in automotive engineering, and this year we're joined by F1 in Schools and student's from Bolton University's National Centre for Motorsport Engineering.
Set up by Dr Andy and Hitomi Palmer in 2000 the Palmer Foundation helps young people from economically and socially disadvantaged backgrounds build careers in automotive engineering by funding apprenticeships.
In the Engineering Village you’ll have the chance to talk to experts and people working in various roles within the industry, watch demonstrations and get first hand tips on the kind of apprenticeship opportunities available.
We’re also being joined by students from Bolton University’s National Centre for Motorsport Engineering who’ve been working on their 1981 Ensign 180B historic F1 car which which won two historic races at Silverstone in August 2021.
We will feature F1 in schools powered by Denford to introduce primary students to the fun of design, analysis, manufacture, where they can build, test and then race miniature compressed air-powered cars. What a fantastic way to learn about aerodynamics, when your young ones construct and decorate a bodyshell to create their own miniature racing car and then head to our mini race track to race your car.
