New Term and time for the SS Great Britain educational activity box. Chosen this time is The Rocket! Some fabulously decorated examples were constructed and then it was the flight test. A few disintegrated on take off but on the whole they were successful, the winner was built by Jack Edwards and didn’t come down to earth for quite some time!
Well it was that time of year again and we took 2 relatively inexperienced teams across to do battle with Marek’s professional’s!
Team 1; Cody, Luke and Jack
Team 2; Ainsley, Ethan and Nathan
Eventually after a long evening Team 1 were beaten in the semi finals by the eventual winner’s and then won the 3rd place play-off.
Members of Team 2 having soaked up as much atmosphere and experience were keen to hit the practice boards for next years tournament.
7pm was time to visit the Bloodhound land speed record project at Avonmouth. Presentation by Mark which was brilliant and then into the warehouse to see millions of pounds worth of car parts (incredible). The visit was great but Richard Branson didn’t turn up! Finally we had a simulated driving run each which was won by Olly who received a model of the Bloodhound car.
