Students solve 'Project X' with the RAF

The RAF came into the UTC to deliver 'Project X' to our Year 10 students. 

An attempt at solving a humanitarian crisis, students were set the engineering challenge to design and build an aircraft that could successfully drop sensitive supplies to two downed pilots whilst travelling down a zip-wire.

The challenge tested the student's abilities to work in a team and remain calm under pressure to execute their humanitarian challenge. Jack who took part in the session had this to say 'I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet with the RAF and take part in the challenge. We had to make sure to listen to all of the instructions, as there were lots of curveballs thrown at us to make the challenge more difficult'. 

Well done to our students for remaining calm under pressure and completing the challenge, and a thank you to the RAF for giving our students an insight into life in the RAF.
