Wood Joint Practical Resource (build your own kit)

Wood Joint Practical Resource (build your own kit)

This consists of two SketchUp files; one an exploded version and the other a final model with supporting images for you to use as you need. It could be a practical lesson for students or a practical test for a technician or new teacher. Its makes a box of box joints which then fits into a frame of frame joints. It is also useful as an isometric drawing exercise. NOTE: This will only work with the latest version of SketchUp.

KS3 Design: Bloodhound SSC: Additive Manufacturing ( 3D Printing) Parts for a 1000mph car.

KS3 Design: Bloodhound SSC: Additive Manufacturing ( 3D Printing) Parts for a 1000mph car.

A 2 min video explaining how Additive Manufacturing is used to create parts for our 1000mph car. We explain the economic and environmental benefits of using this rather than traditional techniques. 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 Chemistry: Bloodhound SSC: How to make a  Carbon fibre Cockpit for a 1000mph car.

KS3 Chemistry: Bloodhound SSC: How to make a Carbon fibre Cockpit for a 1000mph car.

A 3 min video with animations and actual footage to describe how we made the carbon fibre monocoque for Bloodhound SSC. 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 Physics and Design and Technology: Bloodhound SSC: Jet car. Stress Testing the Fin, Materials

A 2 min video clip explaining how we test the fin of a 1000mph car. BLOODHOUND’s giant tail fin is a key part of the car. It keeps it running straight and true. At 1,000mph it will see incredible loads, so the engineers need to monitor the aluminium structure using strain gauges… 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 Forces, Motion, the Science behind building a 1000mph Jet and Rocket Car: Bloodhound SSC

KS3 Forces, Motion, the Science behind building a 1000mph Jet and Rocket Car: Bloodhound SSC

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! The EJ200 Typhoon jet engine’s nozzle is key to getting reheat (aka afterburners). The titanium petals open and close to manage the airflow, generating the trust to reach supersonic speeds.
