Year 8 Students Visit The Home Of Concorde Alpha Foxtrot
On Wednesday, Year 8 students visited Aerospace Bristol, the home of Concorde Alpha Foxtrot; the last of the iconic supersonic passenger jets to be built and the last to fly.
Students had the opportunity to step aboard this famous aeroplane and embark on a flight through the history of aviation achievements through interactive museum exhibits.
The highlight of the trip was taking part in the Mission to Mars workshop, during which students worked in groups to design, build and test a vehicle capable of traversing the rocky Martian terrain to retrieve rock samples from the surface of the planet.
This was an excellent opportunity to get a taste of life as an aerospace engineer and all the students rose to the challenge.Published: March 17 2020
