Enter The Micro:bit Model Rocket Car Competition
The BLOODHOUND Project is using a 1,000mph world land speed record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The project has teamed up with Microsoft to develop its model rocket car programme and integrate micro:bit enabling it to run a schools model rocket car competition.
Sponsorship has been secured to fund foam model rocket car kits for 10,000 teams nationally.
This is a great opportunity to get students excited about science, work as a team and get hands on experience of programming and aerodynamics in one of the most fun ways possible.
All finalists get their school name printed on the tailfin of the Bloodhound car plus:
1st The winning team will be invited to Newquay airport for an unforgettable day watching Bloodhound SSC test runs up to 250 mph before the car deploys to South Africa and £1,000 for the school
