Heathcote hosts RAF Roadshow
On 2nd February Heathcote School once again hosted the RAF Roadshow before an audience of enthusiastic Year 7 students. Ms Faria gives us more information on what has become a fascinating and much-anticipated event...
This fun presentation is designed to inspire young students to become the scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians of the future. It included practical demonstrations of some of the technology and scientific principles that the RAF personnel work with, including remotely-operated drones and a jet engine. There was also time for a quick discussion of the career choices available to students in these areas, both in the RAF and in the industrial sector.
The all-female team that visited the school were particularly pleased with the interest shown and congeniality of the girls in the audience, who asked some of the most interesting questions about living and working as part of the RAF. We hope all our students found the event informative and inspiring.
We can't wait for next year's show!
