The LIV girls (Year 7) braved the cold weather on 8th March and joined three personnel from the Armed Forces and the Bloodhound SSC Ambassador outside to race their model rocket cars. They had previously designed and built them during Enrichment Week and the time had come to race them 50m down a wire using a model rocket for propulsion. Congratulations go to Teams 5, 8 and 1 who came 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. We are now looking forward to sending our best representatives to the Regional Finals in May.
