Queenswood’s Young Scientists Learn the Theory of Flight

Monday 20 April 2015

As our final event to celebrate National Science Week we were pleased to welcome Charlotte Joyce who gave a talk and workshop
presentation to Year 7 on the ‘Theory of Flight’.

Queenswood Year 7 Students chat to Charlotte Joyce, Aeronautical Engineering Lecturer

Charlotte is a former winner
of the Institute  of Engineering and Technology Young Woman Engineer of the Year
who began her career as an engineer in the Armed Forces. She is now a lecturer
in aeronautical engineering and she gave a fascinating talk to Year 7 explaining
the forces involved in flight and giving them the opportunity to build models
ans test their designs.

Some of the comments from the girls:

  • ‘It was amazing!
    It was full of information which I never knew. I guess I can now call myself a
    mini junior engineer. I enjoyed it so much. She made it really fun and
    enjoyable. I would like to do something like it again’. (Ella)
  • ‘I enjoyed
    making aeroplanes and changing them around to make them fly better’ (Chloe)

  • ‘I enjoyed learning about her life. I loved learning about the forces needed to
    be able to fly and what was needed to stay in the air’ (Alina)
  • ‘I think she
    was an inspirational woman and she was friendly and exciting’ (Hannah)
