RAF Race for the Line Challenge

Students take part in Race for the Line rocket car challenge

Year 7 students have taken part in the Race for the Line challenge, designing and making a model rocket car. Today the RAF came in to race their cars, it was a fantastic atmosphere and the students were brilliant. Our winners are pictured with their winning design, and will now work on feedback to go through to the Regional competition. LCpl Casey was very complementary about the work from our students, and said that the designs and times recorded were the best of the Schools he had been to. Fantastic work Year 7!
