Rocket Cars Spectacular


On Monday 30th April an RAF team from RAF Leeming came into the Academy to run our race for the line rocket cars event.

Year 7 have been busy in Computer Science lessons designing and shaping their rocket cars preparing for the drag races.

The cars use a BBC microbit accelerometer to read how fast the cars go together with a pair of light gates.


The cars this year were very fast and well designed, the woosh, smoke and sparks making the event fun to watch.
