Inspired by our ever-popular Rocket Factory, the Bloodhound Rocket Car system provides fantastic design and make opportunities for individual pupils challenged to improve performance or for whole-group competitions. It can be used indoors or outdoors and is great as a motivational tool.
Cars can be manufactured around ultra–low cost rolled paper tubes capped at one end or, as in the Bloodhound Educational program, from high-density foam blocks. The variables affecting performance include wheel types, bearings, body design, overall weight and even suspension. The launcher air pressure can be varied (and monitored using the built in pressure gauge) so that a typical car will travel slowly just a few metres or at very high speed several tens of metres.
Please note: This cannot be used for vertical rockets because of anti–tilt safety requirements.
The pack includes:
- Firing box (requires 2 x PP3 batteries)
Please note: a suitable footpump is required such as TA1 002.
