Thanks so much to Andrew for writing in and sharing a link to a post about the wonderful, STEM filled fun happening at The Purbeck School.
tl:dr – Make LEGO models and test them in our Scale Wind Tunnel, test and improve!
At the recent Purbeck School Community Science Fair, I was fortunate enough to be running a Scale Wind Tunnel manufactured by Clive Evans at Scale Engineering.
These are truly magnificent pieces of engineering, and we were very lucky to be able to use one for the day.
Our version had been outfitted with a Lego studded test bed, which allows for the rapid testing and prototyping of Lego models. As you can see from the picture above, the tunnel is a finely-engineered beast.
