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.

Examples include:

  • The Science of Flight

  • The History of Aviation

  • The Battle of Britain

  • Women in Aviation

 

Activity duration

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

 

Group sizes

  • 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.

Logistics

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.
