Yesterday we welcomed guests from the RAF and the EDT teams to celebrate 100 years of the RAF. The project has been organised to highlight the role of the RAF as a contributor to technological advances and human ingenuity. 100 participating schools and youth groups are taken part in the project which finishes this summer.
The 110 Year 9 students took part in STEM activities including - coding robots, building aircraft to move along a runway powered by an elastic band and building a radar tower out of art straws to support as many weights of 100g as possible.
Congratulations to Ethan Carr, Freya Hatcher-Stenton, Owen Pracy and Isabella Weeks who were crowned the winning group.
The students also had a few presentations about what engineering is and the variety of jobs available in the RAF.
I had another fantastic day supporting the #RAF100 STEM Event at Sholing Technical College. Well done to all of the students who took part and the team behind the event. @TSTCNews @HeadteacherTSTC @rafyouthengage @EDTFirstEdition #STEM— Chris Nash (@Nasher111Nash) April 17, 2018
