BAE Systems and RAF Education Roadshow 2016

Early in March 2016, the BAE Systems and RAF Education Roadshow was launched in a London school. As part of their programme to visit over 420 schools across Britain, TWGSB was delighted to host the roadshow which was delivered to an enthusiastic Year 7 and 8 audience on Wednesday 2nd November.

The roadshow aims to stimulate young people to become the scientists and engineers of the future by demonstrating how the physics that they are studying in the classroom, translates into real-life jobs.

Concepts of cybercrime and the use of drones were highlighted through a visiting drone filming the audience! The physics of flight were cleverly and imaginatively demonstrated with a multi-media experience. Audience participation was actively encouraged through the use of wind simulators, jet engine models and virtual reality demonstrations and their capabilities to offer safe simulated activities.
