RAF100 Event

On Thursday 9th November, approximately 120 students from Years 8 and 9 spent the day with the Royal Air Force and the Engineering Development Trust exploring the exciting world of STEM. From building model radio towers and racing K-Nex jets, to coding robots in a ‘disaster zone’, the students  worked through a selection of practical problem-based challenges, the students worked in teams to solve issues faced by the RAF on a daily basis.

The students thoroughly enjoyed learning about how STEM can be used to solve problems worldwide, as well as gaining a deeper understanding of the plethora of careers within the industries of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The day was facilitated by Mr Bourne, Cross-Academy Lead for STEM, and Flying Officer Jacob Cameron-Johnson, as well as representatives from the Engineering and Development Trust (EDT).
