Awsworth Primary School pupils have been to see a lifesize replica of a 1,000-mph car.

Year six pupils from the school designed a temporary village where the team behind the supersonic Bloodhound car can work as they took part in an education week about the vehicle at the National Water Sports Centre last week.

Nottinghamshire County Council funded 100 schools across the county, including Awsworth, to get involved through educational activities.

Council committee chairman for children and young people’s services Cllr Philip Owen said: “The Bloodhound Project is designed to inspire children and young people to consider future careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics by demonstrating how these subjects can be used to create something extraordinary.”
