STEM Club Fly to the Line national competition.
Thursday saw three very excited Y5 pupils heading off to Gatwick Aviation Museum to represent Rose Hill School in the Regional Finals for the Fly to the Line competition.
The pupils were the winners of the in-house glider competition and now had to apply all they had learnt by building a new glider from scratch in two hours. Each pupil designed and built their own glider which they then had to test and trim so it would fly straight and true.
After lunch all three of our gliders had passed scrutineering and the competition began. Each glider flew three times, each at a different launch angle and the last flight the pupil chose their own angle.
Harry’s glider, Cut, managed 3rd overall with 6.00m
Tom’s glider, Silent but Deadly, came second with 6.60m
Ada’s glider, Jet, came first overall with a fantastic distance of 8.25m!
Well done to all the pupils.
