On Friday the 6th May the whole of Year 8 and 9 had the pleasure of the Physics of flight Roadshow from the Education team from the RAF.

Each year group were entertained and informed about the four forces of flight. The delights of engineering were demonstrated using scary Virtual reality and an amazing floating beachball. The presenters controlled a real life flying drone copter above the pupils heads as well as firing up a genuine twin Jet engine accompanied by the smell and noise of a Fighter plane. The exciting roadshow inspired our youngsters, boys and girls, about engineering careers  and the opportunities open to innovative students with an interest in science Maths and technology.
