Fly to the Line
After coming first, second and third at the Regional Final for the Fly to the Line competition the whole of the Y5 STEM club were invited to attend the National Final at RAF Museum London.
Due to the event happening during Easter our team was reduced to four pupils, but what a four! The pupils were confident with their choice of design and they quickly made a new glider out of a single A3 sheet of foam. The quality of the build was so good it needed very little trim adding. There were over 100 pupils involved and our pupils were a great ambassador for their year group and for the school. We all got an opportunity to explore the museum and look at the amazing array of aircraft and the aircraft that inspired our design was in the museum – the Vulcan bomber!
For the competition our aircraft flew well, but was lagging behind the leader by several metres. For the second launch we asked to increase the launch angle and the glider did go further, but not quite far enough. It was a very close final round and our aircraft flew very well, but we couldn’t quite pull it out of the bag. An excellent day for pupils and parents alike and lots of ideas to share for next season.
