On Saturday, May 12, 2012 the Jubilee School student team named “Sabeg & La7eg” scored the highest number of points across all six categories in the F1 in Schools competition including teamwork, presentation, research, design and speed and marketing.  The team walks away from the competition as the overall champion with a check for 1,000 JODs and the right to represent Jordan in the F1 World Finals in the US this fall.


The 2nd Annual “F1 in Schools- the Formula One Technology Challenge” was held under the patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Basmah Hamzah with a surprise visit from His Royal Highness Prince Hamzah bin Al Hussein during the closing ceremony.  


The all day event, hosted by the King Hussein Foundation’s Jubilee Center for Excellence in Education (JCEE) was held at the Jubilee School and featured 9 different teams from schools and learning centers in Jordan.  75 students and mentors participated in the event held for 10th and 11th grade student competitors.


Competitors have to design and build their own miniature F1 cars out of balsa wood.  The cars, which cannot weigh more than 60 grams, are raced along a 20-meter long track.


The “Stream Line” team from the Amman National School came in second overall while the  “Adrenalin” team from the Mashrek International School placed in third across all categories.


The team “Bolt” from the Retal International Academy clocked the fastest speed along  the 20-meter track at 1.153 seconds.


The JCEE secured the franchise for “F1 in Schools-The Formula One Technology Challenge” in 2010 and is the official center for funning the F1 in Schools competition in Jordan.
