Fast Forward Challenge finalists announced

06 June 2013

Between March and May hundreds of schools entered the Fast Forward Challenge, an exciting competition in partnership with the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Formula 1™ team where science, technology, engineering and maths were brought together to help create champions.

Entrants were challenged to devise a test to help the McLaren drivers improve their reaction time and concentration.

We had some amazing entries, and are delighted to announce the finalists who have been invited to the McLaren Technology Centre on 20 June 2013, where they will get the opportunity to present their entries to a panel of GSK and McLaren judges:

Chew Valley School, Bristol

Heathcote School, Chingford

Pinewood School, Bourton

Simon Balle School, Hertford

Waldergrave School for Girls, Twickenham

Yewlands Technology College, Sheffield

Who will become the overall winner and win £1000 of science equipment for their school?

We’ll be posting some exciting footage of the final day on our competition pages very soon.
