Are You Ready For The Challenge?

2D Challenge – Your challenge is to form a team of 4 pupils and design a race car out of card complete with wheels, body and even a mini driver. You will design your car using design software to produce your car design ideas and manufacture them on a cutter plotter before making your car ready to race.

3D Challenge – You are the design team commissioned to design, manufacture, test and race the fastest car possible driven by compact compressed air. You will use SolidWorks CAD software to design your car before manufacturing it out of a solid block of balsa wood on a Denford CNC Router. In order to enter the championship, you must form a team of between 3 & 6 students and allocate each team member a job role within your group.
