The Bloodhound Project BBC Learning Zone videos

 

The BBC have produced a number of excellent video clips featuring BLOODHOUND SSC. These clips can all be found in the BBC Learning Zone, but have been gathered together on this page.

We are sorry, but due to the licencing, these clips are only available to view in the UK.


Is Bloodhound SSC a car, a boat or a plane?

Duration: 07:07

Bloodhound Investigators find out if Bloodhound SSC is a car,a boat or a plane. They compare and contrast features of each with members of the Bloodhound team.

Subject: Science

Topic: Investigative Skills: Considering Evidence and Evaluating


Why is it so hard for Bloodhound to travel so fast?

Duration: 09:00

Bloodhound Investigators find out about the effects of air resistance and air density on Bloodhound SSC. They also discover the importance of controlling stability, down force and lift on Bloodhound SSC.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Pushes and Pulls


What's Bloodhound like to drive?

Duration: 07:33

Bloodhound Investigators find out why Bloodhound SSC will have a pilot rather than a driver and about the effects of gravity on their bodies.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Gravity


Why doesn’t Bloodhound have tyres?

Duration: 06:57

Bloodhound Investigators find out about the importance of tyres and the problems the Bloodhound team face.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Friction


What makes Bloodhound move?

Duration: 06:09

Bloodhound Investigators find out about the jet engine and the hybrid rocket that uses HTP to burn its rubber fuel.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Pushes and Pulls


How does Bloodhound slow down?

Duration: 07:54

Bloodhound Investigators find out about how air resistance can be used to slow down vehicles. They also discover the importance of traction, drag and aerodynamics.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Pushes and Pulls


Bloodhound experiments - friction

Duration: 03:07

Alongside Dr Yan, a group of children investigate friction as they try to separate interleaved books and spin objects to discover the effects of forces.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Friction


Bloodhound experiments - rockets

Duration: 03:52

Alongside Dr Yan Wong, a group of children investigate rockets, using water pressure rockets to find out how rockets travel and to see how they can make their rocket travel the furthest.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Pushes and Pulls


Bloodhound experiments - measuring drag

Duration: 03:44

Alongside Dr Yan Wong, a group of children investigate ways in which they can change the shape of an object to make it move more quickly and with greater stability through water.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Pushes and Pulls


Bloodhound experiments - reaction times

Duration: 03:18

Alongside Dr Yan a group of children investigate their reaction times versus level of distraction.

Subject: Science

Topic: Investigative Skills: Considering Evidence and Evaluating


Bloodhound experiments - testing different parachutes

Duration: 03:18

Alongside Dr Yan Wong, a group of children investigate ways in which they can change the shape of a parachute in order to carry an egg to the ground safely.

Subject: Science

Topic: Forces: Gravity


Bloodhound experiments - balloon cars

Duration: 04:01

Alongside Dr Yan Wong, a group of children investigate ways in which energy can be applied to vehicles in order to make them move efficiently.
