Bloodhound Land-Speed Record Comes to Bicester

(Re-blogged from Banbury and Bicester College Intranet)

A UK project to break the world land speed record is coming to Banbury and Bicester College.

Bloodhound SCC is a high-technology project to design and build a car that will break the 1,000mph barrier.

On Monday 20 April the Bloodhound STEM roadshow arrives at Banbury and Bicester College’s Bicester campus to offer local young people a host of related activities.

The roadshow, featuring a full-sized model of Bloodhound SCC, will be at the campus in Telford Road for a full week, culminating with the college's open day on Saturday 25 April.

Schools are being invited to get involved by organising trips for pupils in Years 3 to 9. The free roadshow will feature engineering and computer science activities to inspire young people into pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and maths. Up to 120 pupils can attend each day.

Any schools wanting to find out more and book a visit to the roadshow can visit the dedicated web page and complete the online form.

Anyone else keen to visit the roadshow can do so at the Banbury and Bicester College open event at the Bicester campus, in Telford Road, on Saturday 25 April, 10am until 1pm.
