It’s been a long year of Cars Maths in Motion activities and the children have become dedicated fans of the software practicing and competing against each other throughout the year.
Bankfoot Primary once again kept the Bradford flag flying in the World Final Event held in June this year by finishing a wonderful third.
Today is the last day of the Bradford Challenge with children competing for the Bradford Champions trophy. A 2 hour competition with limited teacher support is presently being undertaken with the final to be run at 11.15 this morning.
I love the fact that this software / competition is the only one I am aware of where children are given some basic track information then work feverishly and independently for the best part of 2 hours applying a whole range of maths knowledge and skills to make their car competitive. An update with details of the winning school will be available shortly.
