DSC00373A selection of Year 8 pupils were wowed this week by a fantastic presentation delivered as part of a joint venture by the RAF and BAE Systems. The lively presentation explored topics such as air pressure, aerodynamics, Newton’s third law of motion, thrust, Coanda effect, centrifugal forces and even more! It also had staff rolling on the floor in laughter!

The presentation aimed to inform pupils of the variety of post-16 options and careers available to them in these STEM companies and to encourage them to pursue the subjects that they enjoy at school, reflecting upon how they are used in everyday life.

The pupils involved had a great time, please see our twitter page (@SharplesRA) for more pictures and videos.
