Bloodhound SSC
The BLOODHOUND engineering adventure provides us with a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
The Team invite you to design, build and race your own rocket car as part in an exciting family workshop at their Technical Centre in Bristol. The workshop is aimed at families with children from 6 years and upwards.
Following an interactive presentation on the science and engineering behind the jet and rocket powered BLOODHOUND SSC and an interactive tour of the workshop, including the 1,000mph car its self, your children will get down to the important job of designing their own rocket car racers.
Crafted from blocks of foam, the model rocket cars come in all shapes and sizes and once fitted with axles, wheels and eyelets on the underside to hold the car on to the guide wire, the teams will head out to the car park for racing where they'll reach speeds of up to 55mph.

Family Rocket Car Experience
We had a talk that was interesting and entertaining. I liked the Bloodhound SSC shape and how they work on it. The best part was that my rocket car went 42mph!!
