RAF RoadshowOn Wednesday 15th June, the RAF engineering team visited our Year 8’s in their science lesson with a show on flight. Students learnt about what it takes to make something fly, keep it in the sky and the range of careers that are available in the RAF. Students learnt that it takes 80 people to keep each plane flying, including engineers, air controllers, chefs and many other roles, in addition to the pilot. The team used exciting demonstrations to help students understand about forces involved in flight including a 'Ruben’s tube', where flames danced to music, a state of the art drone, virtual reality goggles and a demonstration of a working jet engine in the science lab. Year 8 students enjoyed the event, especially the Ruben’s tube and jet engine.
