Taking part in F1 in Schools™ is not cheap. Eclipse have been fortunate enough to get help from some wonderful people and organisations so far, but on their quest to succeed at the 2023
World Finals they will need more support than ever before.
F1 in Schools™ runs in over 40 countries across the globe which enables Eclipse to offer you a unique opportunity to be promoted
on an international scale.
Outlined below are some of the benefits of partnering with Eclipse and ways they can provide a return on your investment. Sponsorship prospectuses and letters with more information are readily avaliable.
How can you support Eclipse?
Collaborating with the team can come through means of Financial, Manufacturing or Advisory aid. Every type is essential for success in the competition:
This will help Eclipse afford things such as team uniforms, car components, machinery, outreach projects and trip costs including transportation.
Taking part in F1 in Schools™ requires a lot of manufacturing; supporting them
in this way can help produce a car or pit display with tools not avaliable to
Eclipse in school.
CAD/CAM or Video/Photo Production and Editing Software can help Eclipse
develop their project elements to reach a higher, more professional standard.
Eclipse love to learn from those who know it best. It is inspiring for the team to
work with industry professionals and develop their work in all areas of the
Printing / Uniform
The printing / support in production of team uniforms, portfolios and pit
displays at a discounted cost or for free would help the team excel in major
parts of the competition.
Why should you support Eclipse?
Eclipse offer various levels of return on investment to set the baseline for tailored partnerships. Eclipse's support can benefit you in a number of ways:
Primary STEM Project
Eclipse run a day-long primary STEM competition with local feeder schools;
groups of 30 kids come into their secondary school to get a taste of what
F1 in Schools™ is like and as a team they hope to inspire a future generation of
engineers from this. In the past sponsors have provided Eclipse with financial aid
in order to purchase 3D printers for kids to watch working during the event and
a smoke tunel to see how air flows around the cars that they make.
The team have tried to be as eco-friendly as possible since right at the start of
their journey. CO2 released during transport to events is offset through plantation
of trees and the compressed gas cartridges which are used for the testing of
cars are upcycled. Supporting Eclipse is supporting a sustainable team which
innovates for the future.
With the team accumulating a social media following of over 1000 people, they
have significant outreach within the local community. All sponsors are advertised
on their platforms which include Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
F1 in Schools™ is covered globally across newspapers, television and YouTube live
streams. Your organisation will not only be known to have supported a group of young students in the local area but also across the 40 nations that compete.
Supporting Young People in Engineering
Eclipse is made up of students from different year groups and backgrounds with a good split of gender. Due to their diversity, they work well as a team. By promoting this to thousands of STEM students worldwide, your potential future employees and supporters may be inspired to work for you.
