Bloodhound SSC World Speed Record Attempt Visits Slindon College

18 Nov 2013

Pupils and staff at Slindon College were treated to an exceptional presentation from Ian Glover a member of the Bloodhound World Land Speed Record Attempt team.

During an exciting presentation Ian explained that the team hoped to beat the current land speed record of 763mph achieved in 1997 with their previous supersonic car “Thrust”.  Bloodhound SSC hopes to achieve 1000mph  in South Africa at the World Land Speed Record attempt in 2015.

Ian has visited a number of schools with this presentation and carries with him a poster of Bloodhound which is signed by the Headteacher of each school he visits.

Ian Graham, Headmaster of Slindon College said “This was an amazing and exciting visual presentation that had the audience on the edge of their seats.  The Bloodhound education programme mission is to inspire future generations to pursue science, technology, engineering and maths, by showcasing these subjects in the most exciting way possible to schools.  Ian’s presentation certainly achieved this and I would thoroughly recommend it.”

Schools can register on their website and receive two free A1 posters and regular Project updates via email.
