BLOODHOUND ROCKET FINALISTS Details Monday, 03 July 2017 The BLOODHOUND Project is a global Engineering Adventure, using a 1000mph world land speed record attempt to inspire the next generation to enjoy, explore and get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The project 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. Rocket car kits are designed, modified and constructed by students and then raced in controlled conditions. In April 2017 our team of student engineers traveled to RAF Leeming to compete in the Bloodhound Rocket Challenge regional heats. Energy Coast UTC students were placed 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th in an exciting rocket car launching regional final. Last week our team of intrepid engineers journeyed all the way to SantaPod to compete in the national finals for a chance to travel to South Africa to watch an attempt to break the land speed record. We are proud to announce that our team was placed third at the national finals.
