The Historical Association, the Institute of Physics and the Royal Air Force (RAF) are working together to deliver an exciting, national project for schools which uses the story of the RAF to explore concepts in both history and physics. The project is linked to the RAF's Centenary in 2018 and participating schools will have the opportunity to contribute to the major, national celebrations planned for Summer 2018.

The history of the RAF demonstrates how people and their needs have pushed scientific development. How can knowledge of those people and the technology they worked with push us to think about developments for the future?

The RAF competition is an opportunity for young people to bring together their understanding of history and physics and contribute to the RAF100 legacy. It is also a chance to explore current and future ideas that might shape the way the RAF and its impact on society will develop.
