KS3 Electronics Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Electrical Systems of a 1000mph Car.

KS3 Electronics Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Electrical Systems of a 1000mph Car.

2 min 26 video showing how we rig the Electronic System of Bloodhound SSC. The electronic systems are are the lifeblood of the car. In a state-of-the-art racing car with three engines, three braking systems and over 500 sensors, the electrical systems are key. Systems Technician Milton explains the wiring loom in the cockpit. 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!

KS3/GCSE Computing Telemetry Bloodhound SSC Jet and Car Sensors and Data video

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 A two minute video clip demonstrating how we collect data using hundreds of sensors and use this data to adapt and improve the car. Sensors and data will play a key role in getting BLOODHOUND SSC safely to 1,000mph. Find out how BLOODHOUND’s engineers will be using them at every step of the journey, from UK runway testing to the high speed runs on the Hakskeen Pan, South Africa

Journey of an Email

Journey of an Email

PowerPoint Show (editable) with rehearsed timings and a video file format which show step by step how an email will travel around the world passing through various pieces of network equipment, networks, companies and even under the sea to reach its destination in seconds. Designed for a Year 8 class originally as a demonstration of a task the students then proceeded to try themselves.
