Students explorie the viation through flyng models that reveal the history from 1803 right up to the present day. They are then challenged to design and build a functioning aircraft from card working alongside engineers from the Aviation industry.. Aeroplanes will fly using radio controlled flight units. There is an option to stage an end of day air-show as part of the round up for a STEM day in school. The degree of challenge varies with the age range. Older students build unique designs while younger children learn the principles and history of flight through building with ready made parts.
A day in school iwth upto 40 students, working with 10 aerospace engineers can be combined with an application process. We reccomend teachers advise the students to enter so that students who will benefiit most take part and the volunteer engineers are working with mixed ability groups.
Pre and post learning materials and non-flying model kits to make exciting timeline of aviation displays are available

"Thank you for the fantastic experience you provided at Chew Valley School. The students (and staff!) had an absolutely brilliant time with your volunteers and got a huge amount of enjoyment...and learning... out of the day. You've helped to provide a lot of inspiration for the pupils involved and the school is extremely grateful. Many thanks for the link to the photo blog. The enjoyment of the day shines through their faces."
Mark Mallet, Head Teacher Chew Valley School, Somerset
“I volunteered for a day for “my future my choice” .Unlike some similar events I have supported in the past, I felt that the students got a lot out of it, and as a volunteer, I left feeling that I had made a real contribution”
