STEM Rocket Car National Finals June 2018

A team of three Year 7 students took part in the National Finals of the Race for the Line STEM Rocket Car Competition on Thursday 28 June at RAF Wittering, Peterborough.  The competition involved 17,000 teams from start to finish from across the country.  The TLA team already won the regional final before going on to compete against 57 other regional finalists from across the country.

On the day the team had one hour to build their Rocket Car from their design plans before racing down the 20 metre track, aiming to achieve the fastest possible speed through the timing gates.  The TLA team won the final with a speed of 66 mph in less than one second!  This is a massive achievement and we are hugely proud of them.

The Countess of Wessex presented the prizes at the end of the day.
