On Wednesday P1/2/3/4 went to the Museum of Flight to find out about the role of robotics in flight. We began our visit with a walk through Concorde with Adam, the Learning and Programmes Officer at the Museum. We learned a lot about the technology and cost of supersonic flight. After our tour of the hangars we took part in a technology challenge to build a robotic arm from scrap materials. Adam told us our robotic arm had to be able to move a container of toxic waste (a pot noodle) without human contact. Every group did a great job with only two toxic spillages between us! We ended a great day with a tour of the Fantastic Flight! interactive galleries where some of us learned how to make amazing paper aeroplanes!
Don’t forget the Robots Live event at the Museum on Sunday!
