On Thursday 1st February 2018 Year 7 students took part in ‘Race for the Line’- a National competition run by The Learning Partnership. The competition marked 100 years of the Royal Air Force and Year of the Engineer. In design and Technology lessons, students were provided with the basic materials to design a rocket, which they then adapted as they wished with the aim of making their rocket the quickest in the school. On the race day, a member of The Army came to King Charles armed with light gates and an accelerometer to launch the students’ rockets. Students braved the weather to support their peers while the rockets were launched. We had some fantastic results with the fastest teams’ rocket reaching an impressive 34.2mph!
