Students participated in an engineering adventure of discovery where they explored the incredible possibilities of breaking records using STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths). Army officers delivered a presentation about their careers and the important part STEM subjects have in their roles within the Army.
Students learned about the BLOODHOUND Project which is a using a supersonic car designed to go faster than the speed of sound at 1,000mph to gain a World Land Speed Record. Their project aims to attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in STEM subjects. Students then designed and made their own rocket cars in groups, created a logo and tested them using firework rocket engines on the Astro. The winning team reached 44mph! Well done!
