I attended an inspirational event at Coventry Transport Museum on 16th February to promote the Bloodhound SSC Project, which has set itself some exciting objectives to enthuse the next generation in the STEM agenda. It aims to create a national surge in participation in STEM by providing a real project that students can really get involved in.
So what is Bloodhound and why should you get involved. The BLOODHOUND Project aims to break the world land speed record by achieving 1,000mph. It is an iconic adventure that will push technology to its limit. BLOODHOUND SSC provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
The BLOODHOUND Education Programme will be available to all pupils from primary and secondary school, and to students in further and higher education. There will be a mock up of the car at Rockingham Festival (30th June - 2nd July 2009) built by a company called Visioneering. The project will allow students to be a part of the four year project, by following its progress as the car is designed, developed and tested.
