This BP STEM Challenge supports students to investigate the best wing design for a remote controlled survey aircraft or drone.
The challenge asks students to think about how BP uses remote controlled aircraft to identify new oil reserves and inspect remote equipment. Students are asked to investigation how the shape of a wing effects wing performance, looking specifically at the forces on the wing during flight, balance, shape and creating an efficient wing.
This challenge was developed as part of the Ultimate STEM Challenge 2016/2017. You may wish to remove the slides from the presentation that reference the challenge as entries have now closed.
