During the Summer Term Year 8 took part in our annual Rocket Car Day. This event, run by our Physics Department, takes its inspiration from the Bristol-based Bloodhound SSC project.
After a brief introductory session to establish the scientific principles, the teams planned and designed their own rocket cars. Once finished, the pupils launched them down the School driveway. The winner of the longest distance prize was “Team No Clue”, with an outstanding run of 67.7m!
Well done to all the pupils that took part.
