Students at the Armidale School will be 'feeling the need for speed' this Saturday, when their Memorial Assembly Hall is turned into a miniature Formula 1 racing circuit.
It's part of activities for the TAS STEM Academy Open day.
F1 in Schools is an initiative of Re-Engineering Australia Foundation Ltd, and is an international STEM competition in which students design, build and race a miniature car which is capable of reaching eighty kilometres an hour in under one second.
Slower moving - but no less engaging said organisers - will be the Digital Farmhand, a robot developed by ag tech company Agerris which TAS students of technology, electronics, engineering and agriculture have been familiarising themselves with this term.
The day will feature more than 25 attractions and activities specifically for boys and girls aged 4-14, with the University of New England (UNE) also coming on board for the first time.
The day will get under way at 12.30pm when students will be issued with a free STEM passport, which will give them entry to more than 20 activities including drone racing, Oculus Go Virtual Reality and 3D printing.
There will also be a free barbecue and - not to be missed - the opportunity to sample liquid nitrogen ice cream.
Entry is open to the public and free.
