Science and Engineering workshop at Duxford
The Aerospace hangar at IWM Duxford was the dramatic setting for the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) mega-workshop which was attended by everyone in classes 3, 4 and 5. Over twenty individual activities were organised and run by scientists based in and around Cambridge. The day started with a lecture/demonstration about the make-up of the air around us, and of course, through which aeroplanes fly.
Then we split into small groups for the hands-on activities. Everyone had a chance to do two different ones from the huge range available. Have a look at the photos to see some of the things we did.
We had a picnic lunch outside at the museum and then had some time to explore the exhibits before catching the coach back at the end of the day.
