Research
Laminar Flow/Turbulent Flow
The more laminar flow we have the better! Laminar Flow occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers.(Is the way air flows past something).

Downforce
Downforce is the aerodynamic force that is applied in a downwards direction as a car travels forwards. This helps the car travel faster through corners.

Bearings
There are many types of bearings, each one is used for different purposes. The two main type of bearings are thrust and radial bearings. The radial bearing load comes from the weight of the car and the thrust bearing load comes from the cornering forces when you go around a turn.

Aerodynamics
Aerodynamics is the study of airflow around and over an object. It is an essential part in the design of Formula One cars. A teardrop and a bullet are two examples of the most aerodynamic shapes possible. It is very important to make our car as aerodynamic as possible so for some parts of the car we decided to use the teardrop shape.

Team Identity
Team Name
We chose the name Team Cheetah because the cheetah is the fastest animal in the world. We wanted our car to be related with something that is extremely fast so as a team, we came up with the name Team Cheetah. This name also creates a strong image of speed, force and acceleration.

Motto
Our motto is there to motivate, inspire and encourage us throughout the whole competition. If we have the will of a tiger, the speed of a cheetah, and the heart of a lion, we are sure to come 1st in the Junior Category and achieve our goal!

Logo
Our logo represents an atmosphere of racing, strength and power. The cheetah captures a vision of eagerness to reach the finish line which in our logo is the checkered flag. Our font for team cheetah is simple and sufficient as our cheetah explains our teams identity considerably.

Worlds fastest land mammal 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds. 10-12 years 9000-12000 remaining 35-65kg Carnivore Gazelles

Innovation
For our marketing innovation, we finalized on the idea to contact a zoo in Ireland and ask them to make a 1 minute video for our team. In that video, we would kindly request them to wish us the best of luck for the competition, speak a little about cheetahs and elaborate on their wildlife, also capture the cheetah that they have in their zoo in the video and if they could also mention how people can help save the remaining cheetahs in the world and a make a difference. This marketing innovation will help spread information about the F1 in Schools competition including in our school and will also be beneficial for our teams advertising.

Interesting Fact

Cannot purr and roar like other big cats

Car Design

Orthographic Projection
An orthographic projection represents a three-dimensional object in two dimensions. It is essential for us to create an orthographic projection of our car so we can discover the car in sufficient detail. In the opposite picture, the first sketch is a plan view and the second sketch is a front elevation.

3D CAD
Jennifer as teams design engineer created the 3D version of our car using the software Photoview 360. As we want our car to be the fastest, we have to make sure that we can design the car as aerodynamic as possible. We finalized on the idea to make the top shape of our car in the shape of a teardrop as it is known to be the most aerodynamic shape possible.!

Resource & Planning


Sponsorship

Advertising
To make sure that the team is being advertised, we will use social networking sites such as facebook and twitter, along with youtube. We will make and design a website which will have all the information and details about the team, along with our sponsorship guidelines. We would try to advertise our team on the local newspaper and local radio. We would accomplish this step by contacting the manager of the radio station and the school reporters of the newspapers.

Roisin, as marketing and communications manager, will try to contact various local and national companies to gain sponsorship for our team. We will create sponsorship letters outlining the benefits the companies will receive if they sponsor us. In the sponsorship letters, we will also include our sponsorship guidelines which will outline all the different type of ways the company will be advertised. For example, the companies logo will appear on our website, on our facebook and twitter page, on our car, on our uniform and various other places. Roisin will organize meetings with the companies if necessary and provide them with all the information about what this competition is about!
