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.”
