Ten lucky Year 4 children got to spend a morning at St Andrew's Stanstead Abbotts working with members of the Bloodhound LSR team who are currently attempting to break the land speed record. The children worked in teams to design a vehicle, thinking carefully about air resistance and aerodynamics. Once the vehicles were made, all of the children compared them and made predictions about which would be the fastest. They then headed out to the playground in order to test them- with a little help from some gun powder! The groups from St Mary's did very well, with one group (Jessica, Jessica, Lola and Katie) coming first with a top speed of 49 mph for their vehicle. Well done girls! The children had a fantastic time and were able to bring their cars back to school. See below for photos and videos from the morning.
