Race for the Line: Rocket Car Regional Roadshow


Wednesday Feb 1, 2017 from 10:00AM to 3:30PM


Hosted by CAS East Midlands (Nottingham Trent University)

The largest STEM initiative running in the UK with over 100,000 students involved so far, with over 1000 secondary schools and 2000 primary schools involved.

This is a full day workshop led by Microsoft, Bloodhound and the Army, to train you how to build rockets using the BBC micro:bit, and to train you to become a racing hub to let your students compete to build the faster Rocket Car in the UK. Last year’s winning car achieved 70 mph, can you beat it?

Even if you don’t want to compete, come along and find out how you can put your micro:bit to use.
