Aerospace Bristol is a new industrial heritage museum and learning centre being developed at Filton, to the north of Bristol. It will tell the story of the region's world-class aerospace industry - past, present and future. The Aerospace Bristol project is being run by the Bristol Aero Collection Trust.

Key stage 2

Visit Aerospace Bristol and take your pupils on an exciting journey through time and the sessions we offer for Key Stage 2 students

 

key stage 2

Our interactive workshops take place in our fully equipped learning spaces with specialist facilities, which are led by a member of the Learning Team.

key stage 2: engineers of the future

Examine the different aircrafts produced in Bristol throughout history, and learn how scientific ideas develop over time. Then get to step into the role of an engineer to develop and test their own aeroplane of the future.

key stage 2: hands on maths

This hands on interactive sessions allows your students to develop their mathematical problem solving skills to take on tasks that aerospace engineers tackle in their jobs!

key stage 2: supersonic sound

Develop your understanding of sound, looking at how it is made and how it travels to our ears.  Learn about the sound levels produced by Concorde and then work together to create the most effective device to muffle the sound made by a jet engine.

Upper key stage 2: blast off rockets

In this practical STEM activity session, pupils explore the physics of rocketry before designing and testing their very own rockets - just like the engineers of Filton’s Dynamics and Space Division!

Upper key stage 2/3: layer it up

Explore the different materials used to make aircrafts through history, then make your own composite by layering different materials and testing its strength, and learn how scientists today are continuing to develop these materials.
