Race for the Line is a competition sponsored by Dendrite, with the purpose of inspiring tomorrow's engineers and scientists.
Around 70,000 Year 7 students throughout England, Scotland and Wales compete in a rocket car racing competition, with each school's winners progressing to regional finals, and from there, if successful, to national finals
The competition has involved collaboration between our departments of Science, Mathematics, ICT and Design and Technology. Thank you to all staff members involved.
The weather has not been kind to RMS's attempt: the first day we had planned was cancelled due to snow, and when we finally managed to have
our rescheduled day, it was pouring with rain! However, not even the rain could dampen anybody's enthusiasm for the races.
Our winning teams were 'Speedy people' at 64.9 milliseconds and 'Strawberry Scorpions' at 65.2 milliseconds. Both teams will go to the regional
finals on the 2nd May – good luck to them – we look forward to bringing you news of their results – and congratulations to everyone who took part.
Thank you to Dendrite for organising such a fun and exciting event, and to RAF Northolt (particularly Flt Lt Catherine Morris and FS Craig Gougn for their help on the day.
Here are some of our photos from the day, including the winning cars!
