Tutorial Formula Ethara

Formula Ethara is part of Yas in Schools progras, supported by ADNOC.

‘Ethara’ is Arabic for ‘excite’. Formula Ethara is the ‘Classroom Racing’ Team Challenge for Primary School aged student’s year grades 4-6. The program is typically delivered co-curricular as a themed unit which encompasses a range of 21st Century and STEAM learning outcomes. Some schools opt to deliver it as an extra-curricular activity. We are very proud of the program’s success with over 40,000 children from UAE Private and Government Schools having participated since the programs launch in 2014.

Children form their own mini motorsport team, develop a team brand and then apply this to various project elements they produce including a scale model race car, built form paper card.  Each child builds their own team car. As a team, children also work on other elements such as a team poster and verbal presentation. Schools identify their best teams through school competition and assessment and the best school teams can then enter the annual Formula Ethara National Final.
