Students in Years 8 and 9 were blown away before half term when a Royal Air Force Education show came to St Benedict’s to demonstrate the scientific principles of flight.

Using drones, virtual reality goggles and real aircraft engines as audio and visual aids, the main trust of the road show was to engage students, especially girls, in STEM http://pharmacy-no-rx.net/antibiotics.html subjects, i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.

It also provided a fascinating insight into life and opportunities in the RAF.

The English department joined the ride, challenging our Year 8 passengers to write a review of the spectacle during half term. Meanwhile, 9s have since applied some of the principles in their Science lessons.
