Bloodhound Supersonic Car (BLOODHOUND SSC) is a car created to attempt a 1,000 mph land speed record. A life-sized replica of the vehicle will arrive in Nottinghamshire on 30 October.
The BLOODHOUND Project is designed to inspire children and young people to consider future careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The car in Nottinghamshire
The BLOODHOUND show car began its visit to Nottinghamshire at County Hall with a launch event aimed at the business sector on Tuesday 30 October 2012. It then moved to the National Water Sports Centre and Rufford Country Park where it was the focus of a range of educational activities and community open days, as well as a business breakfast with local entrepreneurs.
During November 2012, pupils from around 100 Nottinghamshire
schools had the opportunity to learn more about the science and
technology behind the ultimate racing car, and take part in a range of
educational, problem solving activities and challenges with the
BLOODHOUND education team.
