OUTREACH PROGRAMME INFORMATION
We offer a range of fun, accessible programmes which are fantastic value for money.
All involve hands-on work with our 1:3 scale Hawker Hurricane model plane.
Alongside this, we have a series of vibrant and engaging STEM and History enrichment activities, designed to help students to understand and absorb elements of the national curriculum.
The Science of Flight
The History of Aviation
The Battle of Britain
Women in Aviation
The programme timings are flexible, but the recommended duration is between 60 to 90 minutes per group. The 90 minute sessions enable us to include an additional group activity challenge, plus a multi-player recap quiz.
Group activities depend on the age range of the students, but normally include any of the following:
Design, test and fly a Magnus Glider
A Range and Angle target calculator challenge
Multi-player recap quiz
The model build and Science of Flight demonstrations enable a class of up to 36 students to all have a chance to participate in the presentation.
We can also do large scale assembly presentations to much bigger groups, although this will limit the amount of audience participation.
Once we arrive at your venue, we require 30 minutes to set up. Given the size of model (approx 3x3 metres), an assembly hall or sports hall is an ideal location. A large classroom could also work, but needs to have enough space for us to move around the model during construction.
