Learn how to bring the F1: Recycled Racers workshop to your classroom with Digital Schoolhouse.

About this event

F1: Recycled Racers Masterclass with Digital Schoolhouse is designed to teach primary and secondary teachers how to deliver the games development resource F1: Recycled Racers in their own classroom.

How will it work?

Led by Digital Schoolhouse’s Curriculum Content Developer, Estelle Ashman, this online interactive masterclass will give you the tools to teach your students how to create a balloon-powered racer out of recycled materials and compete in their own class F1 race! To help them keep track of the race winners, they will also learn about different types of data and how to use a table to store and manipulate it in spreadsheets.

This interactive workshop was inspired by F1® 23, developed by Codemasters and published by EA SPORTS.

Resources for our F1: Recycled Racers workshop are designed to be easily delivered by teachers and attendees of the workshop masterclass will receive a free editable version of the workshop resource pack.

Please email Estelle with any questions at estelle@ukie.org.uk.
