Build a Plane NI

Build a Plane NI (BAP NI) is a collaborative effort between industry and government to support the deveopment of STEM skills in secondary school students.

To enable this, the BAP NI team will support the construction of an actual flying aircraft by secondary school students.

In addition, the team will conduct workshops that instruct students and give them hands-on skills in basic flight engineering and flight simulation, including development models and flying skills using the QUB full motion Flight Simulator.

BAP NI seeks QUB undergraduate team members to help in all aspects of the programme, including developing instructional material and activities, supporting the construction of the aircraft by the students, and aiding them in the development of flight simulator models and testing.
