Post 16 Flying High at Coventry University

Post 16 physics students spent a day at the Engineering and Computing Department at Coventry University. The visit focused on Aerospace Engineering and kicked off with a 3 hour lecture on aviation engineering. Students learnt about the mechanics involved in an aircraft, taking off, cruising and landing including  how aircraft must be structured and forces at work. Students toured the Engineering Centre, tested flight simulators and learnt about the methods employed by undergraduate students who had designed prototype model aircraft. Our students also experienced a wind tunnel and learnt how calculations are made to assess forces that impact aircraft.

Our sincere thanks to all the faculty staff at Coventry University who provided such a
fascinating learning experience.
