Science and Engineering workshop at Duxford

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.
