Year 7 - Race for the Line
This is a totally new project for Year 7 in September 2017.
It encourages our Year 7 students to work in teams to design and make a rocket powered car, then race them. It covers a wide range of engineering disciplines including designing, making, aerodynamic design and testing. There will a race as part of the series of lessons, then an official one around March 2018, then a further one in June/July 2018.
