On Tuesday 7 June, Frome College arranged for the RAF to come in to the school for a 'Fun with Flight' jet fuelled presentation exploring the physics of flying.
Students discovered how the physics of forces they study in the classroom is an integral part of the work that engineers undertake in the RAF and other engineering organisations.
The team used exciting demonstrations involving students in some extraordinary experiments. Drones, balloons, airships VR demonstration and even jet engines were explored during the presentation - with lots of noise!
The RAF are actively promoting women into engineering and the session demystified some of the myths around engineering, hopefully encouraging some of our female students to explore the exciting opportunities available to them in STEM subjects.
This was a huge success and a great opportunity for students to engage with STEM learning like never before.
Our thanks go to the RAF Education Team for their visit to Frome College; we hope to see them again next year.
