On Monday 27th November 2017 all year 10 pupils took part in a visit from the RAF STEM Roadshow. The roadshow was devised in response to the Governments acknowledgement that there is a shortfall of ‘home grown’ scientists and engineers.
‘Fun with Flight’ was a 50 minute jet fuelled presentation exploring the physics of flying. Students discovered how the physics they use in the class room is an integral part of the work that engineers undertake in the RAF and other engineering organisations.
Drones, balloons, airships and even jet engines were all used in draw dropping experiments.
