Rose Hill School pupils 'Fly to the Line'

At 5.30am on Wednesday 27th June, 4 eager children and 2 tired teachers, set off for RAF Cosford for the national ‘Fly to the Line’ competition. The competition sponsored by the RAF Museum Cosford and The Learning Partnership is a unique opportunity to take part in an authentic Science and Engineering challenge.

After a 3 hour journey, we finally arrived and were briefed about the day. Our base for the day was an RAF hanger/'STEM Innovation Hub' with great views of the operational runway.

By 10am, the challenge was underway! Using an A3 piece of foam board, the team had to design and construct a glider. Having already completed lots of testing back at school, we were fully prepared and had our glider constructed in no time at all - a strong design, heavily influence by the infamous Vulcan Bomber. Spare time was spent ensuring the glider was properly balanced and putting finishing touches to the design. RAF personnel were on hand to give us further advice.

Lunch time gave us plenty of time to explore the museum exhibits and even try out the cockpit of a real glider. Having lunch under the wings of a VC10 was definitely an experience.

After lunch, the nail biting competition got underway. The Rose Hill team glider travelled an epic distance of 13m 20cm, putting us in the lead for the majority of the competition. However, we were unable to hold the lead and were eventually, narrowly, beaten by another school.

Out of 26 schools from all around the country, we finished in second position. A fantastic result in a national competition!
