Take a journey through a jet engine

by Guest Blogger 29. January 2011 20:48

Find out how a modern jet engine works – its key components, the materials used, how it is manufactured and the science behind how it works, hear from Rolls-Royce employees who work on those components, then test your knowledge in a short quiz. This new interactive resource from Rolls-Royce has been developed for use by 14-19 year old students to explain how the major parts of a modern gas turbine - jet engine - work. The resource is accompanied by extension activity notes that outline some classroom based activities related to the science of a gas turbine. Rolls-Royce is actively involved in a range of education projects and engaged with partners in the educational sector, to inspire young people with enthusiasm for science and technology because it can provide them with opportunities in their lives and is key to our future economic prosperity. At the company’s major sites around the world Rolls-Royce supports a range of education projects with many of our employees working with local schools to support young people.  For example, around 400 employees across the UK are STEM Ambassadors who undertake regular or one-off activities with schools to enthuse young people about the STEM subjects. The jet engine resource is at:
