Race for the Line BBC micro:bit Rocket Car Competition
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 students to get involved in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The Learning Partnership and Bloodhound Education teamed up with Microsoft to teach students coding with the micro:bit in the “Race for the Line” challenge. http://www.racefortheline.com/
