A group of five current and former Manatee County students fought their way to third place in the largest global competition for science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Known collectively as Perspective Racing, the students visited Singapore and represented the United States during the F1 in Schools World Finals. Hundreds of hours spent designing and constructing a miniature race car, built from balsa wood and powered by compressed air, led up to their victory.
Their team outpaced 47 other groups from dozens of countries between Sunday and Wednesday, according to a news release.
Spark Growth CEO, Sara Hand is proud to have been a mentor and supporter of the Perspective Racing Team.
Significantly they were:
- Coachable when challenged to think outside their comfort zone.
- Accountable and reported back regularly for feedback.
