Year 7 students took part in the Race for the Line competition on Friday 22 March. They worked in teams to design and make the fastest rocket powered car. Each car used the same size rocket motor and competed over the same track distance. The students considered aerodynamics and ways to reduce the mass of the cars.
Team Rampage won the close fought event, their car recording a speed of 42.91mph and will now go through to represent TGS at the Regional round of the competition to be held on the 10th May.
Second place went to team Picktatoes, whose car was measured at 42.69mph.
Third place went to Bullet Dolphin with a speed of 42.47mph.
