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
Learn about the influential people and aeroplanes in the history of aerospace and how aviation has changed and developed throughout time. Think how the aerospace industry might continue to progress and become an engineer on the future by developing your own rocket and launching it into space.
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: 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.
Everything you need to know for a smooth-running day, from the moment you arrive to to completing a risk assessment.
