What we'll do
The first human-powered flight was only 120 years ago. Aeroplanes and other flying technology have come a long way since then. Understanding how objects move through the air is important for engineers. 10am to12 noon –Air Vortex Cannons 12.30pm to 2.30pm – World Record Paper Aeroplane In the morning workshop, we will make air vortex cannons and launch cups to make them fly. In the afternoon, we will design the world record paper airplane and launch it to see how far it can go. You can book for the morning, afternoon, or both sessions.

Cancellation Policy
Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
