Bloodhound Superspeed Car

Today Y6A visited Magna to take part in a Science, Maths and Engineering event. At the event we were told about next year’s attempt to break the world land-speed challenge. Children saw a replica of the vehicle and learned about the technology behind the design and creation of the car. We carried out a range of fun science experiments which taught us about friction, air resistance and the jet propulsion systems required to reach 1000 miles per hour in just 55 seconds! We also found out about the sonic boom that will be created as the car breaks the sound barrier. We even got to apply our knowledge by building and testing our own K-Nex cars!

Y6A had a fantastic day meeting male and female members of the Bloodhound Team! Hopefully it inspired pupils to become the next generation of scientists, engineers and mathematicians.
