The Learning Partnership, Bloodhound SSC, BBC Micro:bit and Microsoft will be sharing a feature stand at BETT (25-28 January) this year, launching the Race for the Line model rocket car competition as a global education opportunity.
Ever wondered how fast a rocket car made of foam can go? That’s exactly what students across the UK are finding out, using Micro:bit mini-computers.
The Rocket Car Competition is using the 1,000mph Bloodhound SSC world land speed record attempt to inspire primary and secondary students to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The Learning Partnership and Bloodhound Education have teamed up with Microsoft to teach students coding with the micro:bit in the Race for the Line challenge.
