HOW WINGS WORK

10:45am-11:45am on Saturday 19 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 26th March. For events on or after 27th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

Department of Engineering, LT2, Trumpington Street, CB2 1PZ

In this talk, Dr Kshitij Sabnis and Pascal Gehlert dispel some common misconceptions about how wings work, by providing a practical introduction, including several live demonstrations, into how wings make it possible for aeroplanes to fly.

Along the way, they will use a number of live demonstrations to illustrate the key concepts and to dispel some common myths about how wings work.

Hear the theory then put your ideas into practice in our kite making workshop that will run all day in LR4.

This event is part of the Department of Engineering's Community Open Day.
