KS3 Computing: Bloodhound SSC - How we use CFD instead of a wind tunnel to design a 1000mph car.

7 min video : Dr Ben Evans from Swansea University explains how Computational Fluid Dynamics has helped the designers to shape Bloodhound SSC. also features Ron Ayers. The BLOODHOUND Project is not only about building a car to go 1,000mph, but it is also a perfect vehicle for education of STEM subjects. Over the life of this project we’ve been able to inspire over 2 million young people!

Circuit Arcade

Circuit Arcade

In this project students gain an understanding of the engineering design process by building a cardboard arcade game where winning or losing completes an electrical circuit. Students will present their arcade game to an audience of middle school or elementary school students. This project was developed by Allen Distinguished Educators Rob Rambach and Patrick Dempsey. SUBJECTS: • Science — electrical circuits, Newton’s Laws • Engineering Design— diagrams, prototyping, user feedback • Social Studies—marketing OUTCOMES: Students will be able to: • Construct a working electrical circuit. • Explain how electrons move through their circuit. • Learn from failure. • Design and build an arcade game incorporating the circuit for a specific audience. • Explain force and motion concepts that relate to their game. • Effectively use the engineering design process. ACADEMIC STANDARDS: • CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.8.1 • CCSS.ELA-LITERCY.SL.8.1.A • CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.8.1.B • CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.8.5 • CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.SL.8.6 • MS-PS2-3 • MS-PS3-1 • MS-PS3-2 • MS-PS3-5 • MS-ETS1-1 • MS-ETS1-2 • MS-ETS1-3 • MS-ETS1-4
