Making Engineering Fun With Formula One Roving Simulators at PSB Academy

by August 12, 2016 General

SINGAPORE — (Marketwired) — 08/11/16 — For the first time, Singapore GP is bringing Formula 1® closer to Singaporeans with the Rev Up Singapore! truck from 25 June to 24 August 2016. PSB Academy will be the first education institution to host the roving exhibition. The exhibition aims to give Singaporeans the opportunity to experience the thrills of motorsport with racing simulators, while learning about the engineering feats and workflow behind the running of an F1 race.

Students, staff and visitors were treated to more than 1,200 rounds on the simulated track using the six F1 race simulators at the school yesterday afternoon.

“The future of education needs to be fun, interactive and enriching. Through this partnership with Singapore GP, we hope our students and the public who visit us today will be inspired by the engineering genius behind the F1 cars and races. The races give us a look into the future of precision mechanical and electrical engineering, and we want to inspire prospective students who want to build careers in this industry, which undoubtedly is one of Singapore’s burgeoning Smart Nation sectors,” says Derrick Chang, COO, PSB Academy.

The truck made its first appearance at SAFRA Punggol on 25 and 26 June as part of its ’30 Days of Fun Carnival’, and will continue to make its way to the heartlands, community events and public spaces.
