A Formula 1- type car produced by students of UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees School in Gaza is getting ready to enter the Formula Student auto race in the United Kingdom next month.
After weeks of designing, polishing, and crafting, a group of students in the Khan Younis Training Centre, run by the UN agency and their teacher test drove their car.
Students hope that their participation in this contest will prove to the world their continuous determination to overcome obstacles posed by Israel’s occupation.
The Formula Student competition will be staged at Silverstone on July 14 for three days and will attract engineering talents from all over the world.
The aim of this contest is to enable students to design and build their own single-seat car that meets a raft of exacting technical, design, speed criteria of the mother company.
Speakers: Dr. Ghassan Abu-Ourf, college’s dean.
