Kings School Speedy Car ChallengePosted on: 12/07/2017
Once again the Design Technology Department at Barton Court Grammar School competed in the Kings School Speedy Car Challenge, this year taking a record of 11 students over 4 teams, the most teams from any visiting school.
Students from Years 7 and 8 attended the CAD/CAM club for 6 weeks and spent much of their own time after school to build, test and perfect their vehicles. We were thrilled to have our first ever all female team, whose imaginatively named vehicle “Leaf Leaf” was a hot favourite with organisers to take home a prize. Sadly it was not to be, but 3 of the 4 teams reached the semi-final, before being too badly damaged to go on and having to be withdrawn.
Mrs Parker would like to thank Graham Swindley and all the wonderful staff and students at the Kings School for making the day such as success, and also to our own future engineers for their perseverance, dedication and can do attitude.
