The long awaited reward, at the end of Internal Examinations week, for our Shell, Second, Third and Fourth Year pupils was enjoying Expeditions Day or for some, the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze hike or a trip to the French Battlefields.
Our Second Years headed for Staffordshire to learn more about the RAF and the science of flight at RAF Cosford. The year group was split into four teams, each with an action-packed day of activities that included making a pneumatic rocket and firing it in an aircraft hangar, having a go at being a Red Arrows pilot in a simulator, hands-on science experiments, and taking a selfie in a Jet Provost cockpit.
Miss Sam Holyman, Bablake's Junior Science coordinator, said: “It is a brilliant annual trip! Every year we have evaluated our visit and made a few changes so that our pupils receive an even better experience every time we go. The staff at RAF Cosford are amazing and I love to bring the world of Science and Engineering alive in a bid to ignite the imagination of our students to hopefully consider a career in this field.”
