BAE Roadshow

On January 18, the RAF/BAE Stem Roadshow landed at Allerton Grange. Returning for the second year in a row, the show aims to inspire young people in the areas of science, technology and mathematics, with a view to create the next generation of engineers.

Over 500 Year 7 and 8 students were shown how maths plays a crucial role in the design of ships, planes and other technologies, through a series of interactive and imaginative displays.

The undoubted star of the show was MIA the robot, who has 7 internal computers, dancing to Michael Jackson and solving tricky equations.

Students also saw a Paramotor in action and were astounded at the part mathematics plays in simple card tricks.
