The RAF fly in for STEM morning

Posted: 12th June 2016

OUR Year 8 pupils started the final half of the Summer term with an energetic and exciting show from the RAF STEM presentation team. 

The theme was ‘The Theory of Flight’ and there were lots of demonstrations including a camera drone, a jet stream and a pair of miniature jet engines that span at 200,000 RPM and made so much noise that the rest of the school thought a helicopter had landed. 
The show was fast-paced and interspersed with lots of fantastic video clips of RAF aircraft. As expected, there were plenty of volunteers for the interactive parts. The bonus at the end was to see how fast toilet paper can be unrolled in a jet stream.
