TEAM FUSION 1
Fusion 1: one of the two all-girls teams that qualified at the regionals for the F1 in Schools™ National Finals being held at Amity University, Noida between 25th to 27th April 2019. In addition, we won the "Team Identity" award at the regionals.
There has been no looking back from the day we heard about this challenge. With sheer excitement alone, we formed a team and plunged right in. We form a team that complements each other with our varied interests in sports, arts and technology. We are:
1. Nylah Nalwad - Cool Druid: Team Manager and Engineering Guru
2. Diya Balamurugan - Resourceful Druid: Sponsorship and Resources Guru
3. Tiana Muthanna - Smart Druid: Graphic Guru
4. Dishita Bajaj – Intelligent Druid: Design Guru
We as Fusion 1, aim to reach fellow students and their parents in India and perhaps around the world. We also would aim to reach the corporate and business entities that we will build our careers with them in the future.
Our learning journey has been amazing. We have been exposed to using cutting edge design software, automobile design, 3D printing, marketing and sponsorship strategies, program and budget management, teamwork and collaboration and last but not the least, having a lot of fun along the way.
As we head into battle with 50 other teams, consisting of students in the ages of 9-19, we seek your support in the next few weeks to assist and encourage us as we make a bid to reach the World Finals of F1 in Schools.
Some of our sponsors like Fleetfoot Adventures, BREN Garage, ICATT Air Medical, Lucid Designs have been with us along our journey and continue to support us.
Today, we need additional support in areas of travel and accommodation, portfolio printing, installing a pit booth and merchandising. Come!! Encourage us and support the leaders of tomorrow in Engineering, Science, Innovation and Business!!

Q5. How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an Idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such a pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries
