Bloodhound SSC Stockport is a global engineering adventure using a 1,000mph world land speed record attempt to inspire the next generation about Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
The Bloodhound engineering adventure provides us with a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. To achieve this ambitious goal, the Bloodhound Education Programme will be made available to all pupils in primary and secondary schools, and to students in further and higher education. Stockport College is currently one of many Education HUBS for Bloodhound.
Why do we need a BLOODHOUND Education Programme?
In the UK, and many of the developed countries worldwide, there is a shortage of scientists, engineers and mathematicians and we therefore urgently need our young people to be motivated to enjoy and study science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects at school and then at university. The Bloodhound SSC Stockport Project is endeavouring to be the catalyst through which young people will acquire the skills and develop innovative talents that will enable them to overcome the challenges we face on a global scale.

The network of BLOODHOUND STEM Ambassadors and many Sponsor companies have a wealth of information on the work they do, opening people’s eyes to possible career paths.
“We have just returned from the BLOODHOUND workshops and I would just like to say how fantastic we thought it was. It was led very professionally and pitched at just the right level for our children. I have no doubt that all the children thoroughly enjoyed it and gained great inspiration and knowledge from attending.” Stewart Debenham, Deputy Headteacher Kingsland CE Primary School
“Stockport College and the Bloodhound SSC education team have been working together for over a year and have jointly hosted exciting and engaging education events at the College and at Manchester Airport for local schools and our own FE learners. The feedback received from these events has been fantastic with attendance at capacity – it is quite clear to us that Bloodhound as an engagement strategy for schoolchildren, FE and HE learners is a powerful and exciting platform to stimulate interest in STEM for both boys and girls”.
