BLOODHOUND SSC Desert Search
This BLOODHOUND SSC activity uses Google Earth to investigate the suitability of sites for a land speed record attempt. It is a useful activity for stimulating discussion and developing literacy and numeracy skills. Students try to identify a new site for the BLOODHOUND car to run on, considering specific needs such as the size of the area necessary, the reliability of the surface, road access and security.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
