The interactive show format will help contextualise the physics of flight and bring to life classroom learning. Students learn about the principles of flight through a series of fun and interactive demonstrations.
This session can either be delivered as an interactive show or a workshop.
Within the workshop format, students receive an introduction to the basic principles of flight and then discuss the requirements to balance forces. A competitive practical element is then included where students design and test their own aircraft from paper and k-nex to meet a specific challenge using the principles of flight.
Minimum of 30 participants, maximum of 200 participants.
All costs are dependant on the number of learners engaged throughout the day and staff to student ratio required.
