A group of pupils from High Peak recently enjoyed a visit to the Science and Industry Museum.
The group were there to see the museum’s Space displays including aircrafts as this is the group’s topic this half term. The students really enjoyed the Red Arrows simulator and said they felt like they were really a Red Arrows pilot!
Then it was on to Fly 360, which is the cock pit of an aircraft which they flew themselves…… and only crashed a few times!
Finally one student, R, tried a Virtual Reality simulation of Tim Peake’s decent from space and really enjoyed the experience.
After all of those experiences, the group then visited the rest of the museum where they interacted with robot and undertook a challenge of Human Vs Robots – and the Humans won! The pupils also got onto the MOSI leader board of fastest reactions, beating several other schools to the honour.
