Design, build and test an ejection seat.
This workshop begins with an introduction into ejection seats and the forces acting on a pilot. Pupils will have to work together in teams to construct a model ejection seat kit. Tests will be carried out to assess the quality of build and whether they can launch pilot Ted from his aircraft.
Science: working scientifically, forces and motion and energy changes
Design & Technology: design, construction, use of basic tools, trial and improvement leading to evaluation of overall design
