The Bloodhound Project VEX Robotics Workshop

Invite the BLOODHOUND Education team to visit your school or college and we will inspire your students with our hands-on activities based around our project to build the world’s first 1,000mph car – BLOODHOUND SSC.

In this package we offer up to 90 children the chance to program a VEX IQ robot to complete a BLOODHOUND SSC challenge. This is an exciting and dynamic hands-on introduction to engineering and coding!

What we offer

The VEX Robotics Workshop is a whole day event that can be run to include three 1-hour taster sessions or two longer sessions. After the event, we’ll provide you with access to free e-resources for further activities.
