TGS Year 7 team's KAM rocket car built and ready to race in the Race for the Line Regional Finals 2018

The Race for the Line competition is intended to inspire tomorrow's engineers and scientists with a national rocket car racing competition involving around 70,000 Year 7 / S1 students in England, Scotland and Wales. Year 7 competed in school earlier in the year, and the TGS winning team from the school qualified to compete in the Regional Final. Today the Regional Finals will identify the top 40 teams from the 18,000 competing nationally who will be invited to the national finals to be held at RAF Wittering on the 28th June 2018. "It is a just one of a number of STEM projects part of our co-curriculum experience in Computer Science which engages girls in projects designed to promote and develop transferrable skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics." Subject Leader for Computer Science Garry Owen commented.
