BLOODHOUND Scotland Rocket Car Challenge Final

BLOODHOUND Scotland is a partnership between Energy Skills Partnership (ESP), the Army, Education Scotland and Scottish Schools Education Research Centre (SSERC) working together to bring The Bloodhound Rocket Car Challenge to Scotland.

The BLOODHOUND SSC 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 (STEM).

BLOODHOUND Scotland currently consists of a network of 15 regional college hubs across Scotland from Isle of Lewis and Thurso to the Scottish Borders. Through support from the partners 40 college staff and 45 Army personnel from across Scotland have been trained as BLOODHOUND Ambassadors to deliver the Rocket Car workshops. Each hub has also been equipped with a race kit including BBC micro:bits and a supply of rocket cars. The competition allows the college network to engage with their local schools and promote STEM related careers and inspire the next generation.

BLOODHOUND Scotland’s Rocket Car Challenge: Race for the Line (#bloodhoundscotland) sponsored by Microsoft was launched on 18 April 2016 as part of the National competition which is open to secondary students aged 11-16. The competition will see teams compete to design, build and race a BLOODHOUND SSC model rocket car.
