Before Christmas, Year 7 designed and made Rocket Cars as part of a STEM competition for Race for the Line. The competition is inspired by the Bloodhound Project- the UK’s attempt to set a new land speed record of 1000mph later this year.
Today, as part of British Science Week, our Year 7 students raced their gun powder fuelled rocket cars on a specially laid track to find out their times. Our pupils counted down from 3 and cheered each car as they sped down the track, going proportionally as fast as the Bloodhound itself!
