On the 2nd May 2018, four Year 7 students went to the regional finals of the rocket car design and launch at RAF Northolt. Although the weather could have been better, all the students worked well in a team to design and build their rocket car to race against other schools from the Watford Area. The students really enjoyed meeting other members of the RAF along with getting the chance to watch some of the planes take off from the runway and having a detailed look at some of the vehicles which were on show. The car they built traveled 142.6 milliseconds over 100m which was so fast that one of the wheels detached mid-race. The students were a real credit to both The Bushey Academy and the Science Department and should be really proud in their efforts throughout the day.
