Mitutoyo Supports Next-Gen Engineers as F1 in Schools Partner
Mitutoyo, the world’s leading manufacturer of precision measuring equipment, has partnered with F1 in Schools, Formula 1’s global STEM student competition. This partnership aims to inspire and educate over 450 students from 33 countries participating in the 2023 Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals held in Singapore from 10 to 13 Sept 2023. Participants will receive exclusive access to the Mitutoyo eLearning platform, an online learning resource that provides in-depth training on various metrology topics and measuring tools.
“The future of our industry depends on our ability to train and educate today,” said Takashi Matsuike, Managing Director at Mitutoyo Asia Pacific. “We are delighted to support the Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals and share our knowledge and expertise with the next generation of young engineers and product designers. The event will be a fantastic opportunity for us to showcase how metrology is applied in practice and demonstrate the tools and equipment which make it possible.”
The scrutineering process during the competition will utilize Mitutoyo tools, such as vernier calipers and digimatic scales. These precise measurements are crucial as each F1 in Schools car undergoes technical inspection, ensuring compliance with the technical regulations.
“Understanding accurate measuring is vital in the field of engineering,” Andrew Denford, Founder and CEO of F1 in Schools, said. “It feeds into every element of design and manufacturing and it’s a skill we are passionate about sharing with our students, so it’s fantastic to have the global leader in the field as a partner at the Aramco F1 in Schools World Finals this year.”
Mitutoyo’s global presence in over 100 countries offers its customers local support and global technical advice. From micrometers, calipers, and indicators to large metrology equipment like hardness testers, vision measuring systems, form measuring machines, linear gauges, and 3D coordinate measuring machines, Mitutoyo provides a wide range of precision measuring equipment.
F1 in Schools is a not-for-profit social enterprise that aims to change perceptions of STEM subjects through global competitions. Students aged 9-19 participate in multi-disciplinary challenges, using professional CAD software to design, analyze, manufacture, test, and race miniature compressed air-powered cars. Many successful F1 in Schools participants have pursued fruitful careers with F1 teams.
The partnership between Mitutoyo and F1 in Schools signifies a commitment to empowering young minds in the STEM field and inspiring the engineers of tomorrow.
