South Cave Cubs – An Inspirational Visit
With a simple set up of a hairdryer and a ping pong ball, these young cub scouters (and future avionics engineers) learnt about Bernoulli’s principle. By holding the ping ball in the airstream, it was explained that Bernoulli’s principle states that as air moves around an object, it creates different pressures on that object. Faster air means less pressure. Slower air means more pressure. They then put what they had learnt into practise by designing, building and flying paper aeroplanes!
We are sure that Robert would have been very proud that the principles with which he designed his first aircraft back in 1911, are still being passed to future generations, and on the site he founded back in 1916. The boys and girls all took part, and all earnt their Air Activities Staged Activity Badge!
Well done to everyone involved!
