Want to Design an Aeroplane?
With our second round of Genius Hour fast approaching, it was great timing last Thursday when Mrs Crowhurst invited an aviation engineer to talk to us.
The engineer worked for Boeing. She showed us heaps of pictures of all the aeroplanes that she had helped to design - Now we all want to go to university to study 'mechanical engineering'!
Afterwards we had a go at designing our very own paper aeroplanes. We learned that for the paper version, bigger wings were better. Some of us even added 'flaps' which we insist helped them to stay in the air longer.
Maybe some of us will take this 'passion' and develop it further in our next genius time?
