Primary Engineer: Bloodhound SSC Build a Prototype Car
In this Bloodhound SSC resource from Primary Engineer, pupils design and build a prototype car to investigate the use of stored energy such as baloons and rubber bands, using easy to find resources and tools.
Bloodhound SSC is a car being designed to travel at 1050mph, by a British Team aiming to break the world land speed record
Prototyping means to build simple models to quickly test out design ideas. Pupils will investigate the use of stored energy in materials such as baloons and rubber bands, the distribution of mass (does mass matter?) and friction.
Pupils will also investigate a range of materials and will need to make decisions about the type, size of wheels and power source.
