Bloodhound Land Speed Record!
On 21 September, our Year 7 pupils enjoyed a brilliant half day STEM workshop at one of our partnership schools: St Charles RC Primary School. Our pupils joined forces with their Year 6 on the Bloodhound Land Speed Record workshop. The workshop was an exciting opportunity to learn about jobs in STEM and to experience using engineering skills. In teams, they were challenged to design and build the most effective air-powered rocket cars that would run as quickly as possible over a set distance. They then moved outside to the playground to test their cars and see who could achieve the fastest time, to huge cheers as each car was propelled with force! The pupils had to work closely in their teams throughout, and it was lovely to see children from both schools collaborate effectively and put their decision-making skills to good use.
