Great news.
Year 5 pupils took part in a design project while Y6 were away at Hawkhirst. Mrs Nicholson asked the pupils to design the car of the future.
Their winning design included using a magnetic propulsion system and used solar power as the main energy source.
Their design was entered in a national competition, and we were one of only 8 schools nationwide to win a green car to build and race in a competition. Starting from next term pupils will be working with Newcastle University to build the car and test how well it works. Then a driver will need to be selected to race it in a series of events beginning in June.
More details on the project can be found on the Advanced Propulsion Centre website. (Click here for more detail.)
