Scalextric4Schools - RAF Museum, Cosford

The Scalextric4School final competition will take place this Sunday, June 24th at the RAF Museum, Cosford. For the first time, this year's competition has drawn participants from schools outside of the UK to include two teams from as far away as St. Petersburg, Russia.

The competition aims to inspire young students to consider design and engineering in higher education and as careers. Over 500 schools participate annually, many incorporating the competition into curriculums. PTC sponsors the challenge along with its UK partner, Root Solutions, and Hornby Hobbies Limited. Hornby Hobbies is a long-time user of PTC solutions for the design, manufacture and documentation of its world-renowned Scalextric, Hornby, Corgi and Airfix branded products.

"PTC Scalextric4Schools has gone from strength to strength since its launch four years ago with students showing genuine enthusiasm and innovation in the development of their cars," said Tim Brotherhood, Curriculum Development Manager for PTC. "The aim of providing a low–cost, design-make-race curriculum project has enabled hundreds of schools to build the challenge into their lessons."
