There’s a great competition I’d like us to enter:

Here’s the plan:

  • Year 8’s form teams (sorry this is only open to Y8’s)
  • You Design the car – Using 3D modelling software such as Sketchup or Fusion 360  you’ll design a sports car (within pre-set diameters)
  • You Test the car – Using wind tunnel modelling software
  • You Build the car – on a standardised analogue chassis
  • You Race the car – internally on an analogue racetrack (Scalectrix)
  • The winner goes on to represent the school nationally using a digital chassis
