Futures Year 9 students had the unique opportunity to participate in a “go slow” workshop led by Airbus alumnus Kyle Horton. The activity, inspired by nature, challenged the students to use their design and engineering skills to see how slowly they could make a piece of paper fall.

During the workshop, students experimented with various designs, drawing inspiration from natural elements to create the slowest descent possible. The hands-on experience not only honed their engineering abilities but also encouraged creative thinking and problem-solving.

In addition to the practical activities, Kyle provided an insightful overview of Airbus, one of the leading aerospace companies in the world. He discussed the various routes into engineering careers, offering valuable advice and inspiration to the aspiring engineers.
