The Bloodhound SSC Project

This Teachers TV programme looks at how the Bloodhound Project is inspiring Key Stage Three students to study science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Annie Beresford, an engineer from Bloodhound, comes to Bayhouse School to learn about the projects the school has set up based around the land speed record, culminating in students building and racing their own rocket powered model cars. During the project, students calculate the speed of sound, study aerodynamics, learn about marketing and delve into the history of the land speed record attempt. Tension mounts as the teams compete against each other to be the fastest, with their model cars reaching speeds of up to 60mph on the school's improvised test track.
