Event details:

Below is an example of the types of sessions we run for this subject. We also do general talks on studying this subject at university and at City.

A Mechanical degree provides a broad foundation in engineering concepts with an
emphasis on application to complex mechanical systems and is designed to train students to work in the fields of transport, energy, materials and manufacturing, including the aerospace and automotive industries. Students also go on to work in the aircraft and energy industries.

What we offer
A session on the science behind the efficient flight of an aircraft and mechanical system with design challenges to create a long flying paper aircraft and a paper tower.

How it is delivered
A session on Mechanical or Aeronautical Engineering, providing a context for aerodynamics, strength of material, structure and the science of motion
and energy. The session will include model making of a paper aircraft and a paper tower.

The benefits for the student
Introduction to engineering, with the opportunity to be creative and gain an understanding of the science behind apparently simple, every-day challenges. The methods can be recreated, forming the good practice of any scientific experiment. The end product can be retained as a memento of the briefing and shared with peers and family.

The benefits for the school or college
Provision of realistic open-ended design exercises with a practical demonstration of scientific theory in action for the paper aircraft and paper tower exercises.

This is a free service.
