Students from Sanday and Stronsay schools took part in the Bloodhound Challenge , yesterday Wednesday 8th March. This is part of a unique engineering programme to encourage students to research, design, build and test a Rocket Car.
Eight rocket cars were constructed.
The top two teams were:
- Team Cut Away (from Stronsay School), comprised of team members Elizabeth Miller, Philip Piper and Mikey Stevenson
- Team Speed of Light with their car, Blue Lightning (from Sanday School) and comprised of team members Frideswide Clackson, Caitlin Muir, Chris Owen and Raven Redhead.
The two top teams from Orkney will now go on to compete at North Highland College, Thurso in April.
Six other northern schools, from Tain, Golspie, Dornoch, Wick, Thurso and Farr will join them in the next stage.
The top teams from that competition will be eligible to compete in the Scotland Finals at Perth in June.
