All of the girls in Year 5 and 6 had the chance to do some sport with Mrs Lewis, one of our teachers at school who we found out used to play netball for Wales! We did some sprinting and a workout and learnt about the importance of keeping fit, just like a racing driver would. At the end, we had a go at the batak challenge, which Maite, our champion from the Tamworth day won again! The batak was brought to school by Williams Racing for us to use. We found out that a Formula 1 driver can do around 72 hits in 30 seconds!
“I really enjoyed our D2BD STEM day; it was really fun (especially as I won the Batak challenge again!). I learnt all about F1 and how the cars work, like the effect of down force”. Maite
