For Students & Teachers


F1 in Schools

The world’s most competitive STEM competition involving over 17,000 schools in 44 countries. Students design-make-race a miniature F1 car capable of reaching 80 km/h in under 1 second. Australia are the reigning World Champions and World Record holders.

Subs in Schools

Students explore the complex challenges of maritime engineering, hydrodynamics, coding and electronics as they design and build operational submarines and ROV’s. The program is designed to promote the development of skills needed to participate in the new set of industries which will be created in support of the Department of Defence Future Submarine program.

Proven Results-Based STEM Learning

Over the past two decades, REA’s unique applied learning programs have put “Cool” back into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Our programs link schools, industry, TAFE, universities and parents in a collaborative and entrepreneurial environment focused on attracting students to take up STEM based subjects at school and careers after leaving school.

A major reason behind the success of our programs is the practical and applied learning techniques we employ. We confront students with exciting challenges, we equip them with world-class tools and connect them to industry mentors to facilitate development of their thirst for knowledge.

Our programs deliver curriculum-based learning outcomes from the earliest years of primary education through to senior high school. We have created an environment in which students are self motivated to learn. The programs are not just about technical skills but also develop the many “soft skills” industry is asking for, making them more employable.

Our programs have a dramatically positive impact on classroom dynamics. Student engagement improves across all schools subjects and 86% of teachers highlight that participation has changed the way their schools engages with the concept of STEM.

Even the students are reflecting the impact with 51% of participants more interested in studying higher levels of Maths, 60% more interested in studying higher levels of Science and 70% of all students changing their career path motivations to be STEM based.

“F1 in Schools™ is the foundation and key innovation focus in our STEM program. It is taught as a curriculum subject with some 150 students taking part each year. Teachers in all subject disciplines contribute to the program, promoting true STEM ideals.”
