Skylab Aeronautics Workshop

Earlier on in the session, The Skylab worked with nearly 200 pupils across S2 and S3. The purpose of this workshop was to demonstrate the “Science of Flight” to pupils and allow them to make their own model planes. They were given tutorials in how to fly these planes and learned some of the facts surrounding the science which makes flight possible. This was also beneficial in raising the profile of STEM based careers within the school. Representatives from The Skylab commented on the level of engagement from pupils involved and as seen in the pictures, pupils seemed to enjoy flying their planes.
