On July 26th 2013, Coventry University hosted a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Masterclass for over 300 17- year old School and College students, presenting activities and meetings designed to show the livelier side of what a STEM career can involve.
During the event, a complementary presentation of the Fly Higher project and its tutorials was organized and made the wonders of the audience due to its highly interactivity. Alongside the lecture which was strongly complimented by props, students were incited to put “hands-on” and “discover” the key features of Aeronautic Science.
The day involved contributions from engineering departments within the Faculty of Engineering and Computing. This year it included an air powered racer from the Automotive Department, a bridge building activity from the Civil Engineering department and a careers talk from industry representatives.
