About Us

Aqueous is a team of nine high school students from New South Wales, Australia, representing our country in the 2021(22) F1 in Schools™ World Finals. We pride ourselves in our innovation, sustainability, commitment, perseverance, and teamwork. As a team, our aim is to not just succeed in the F1 in Schools STEM Challenge™, but also help each other develop and hone skills that enhance both our career opportunities, and us as people.

"Dynamic solutions through innovation, adaptation, and collaboration."

Our Collaboration

Our team is split into two halves. One is based in the Blue Mountains, at Blue Mountains Grammar School in Wentworth Falls. The other is from Newington College, Stanmore, Sydney.

Originally, we all competed as two separate teams at the 2021 F1 in Schools™ Australian National Finals: PerPetrol and Aeolus Racing. We have been brought together to form a strong collaboration for the upcoming World Finals.
