A SUPERSONIC car wowed Worle students during an exhibition at their school.
The University of the West of England and the Bloodhound car education programme were based at Worle Community School for a week encouraging more than 700 primary and secondary students to get excited about a future in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The Bloodhound project involves designing a car capable of 1,000mph to attempt the latest world land speed record, a model of which has been on show in the school hall.
Students have been involved in workshops looking at real life examples and data from the Bloodhound project and have experienced building and racing K’nex cars.
A few lucky pupils have driven the Bloodhound simulator and some will have their names printed on the tail fin of the actual car as a reward for excellent work.
