Paper airplane engineering masterclass

Year 6 and 7 attended a Paper Airplane Engineering Masterclass delivered by Aeronautical Engineer graduate, Tim Minshall, who is working in the Maths department at Millfield Senior School.

Pupils considered the effects of lift, thrust, drag and gravity and aimed to improve the design of their paper airplane to achieve the longest flight length. Wing tips, wing span and a strong arm offered the greatest flights.
